This paper introduces a new call admission control (CAC) mechanism for Long Term Evolution (LTE) networks supporting multimedia services with different classes of traffic. Our CAC mechanism classifies calls into real time and non-real time users, then estimates the channel quality based upon the received signal strength (RSS) value, and finally identifies the call as either new call (NC) or handoff call (HC) request before performing admission control decision. We also use a simple preemption
