This paper presents an enhanced cell visiting probability (CVP) estimation technique by integrating both mobility parameters such as position, direction, and speed together with exponential call duration probability of mobile units. These improved CVP estimates can be used in both adaptive and nonadaptive mobile networks to enhance QoS parameters. This paper also presents a new shadow-clustering scheme based on these enhanced CVPs, which is then applied to the call admission control scheme similar to the one, called predictive mobility support QoS provisioning scheme, proposed by Aljadhai and Znati (2001). Simulation results confirm that this new shadow-clustering scheme outperforms predictive mobility support QoS provisioning scheme in terms of different QoS parameters under various different traffic conditions.
