Limitation of wireless resources is the main obstacle for meeting the widespread demands in the cellular network technology. The crisis of resources is further augmented when reservation is made for supporting the migrating users from the neighbouring cells. Many mobility support advanced technologies and mobile communications protocols have been developed to optimally utilize wireless resources. Some policies support the heterogeneous access technologies for multimedia services in mobile networks. Some other policies exploit the mobility information from the current and neighbouring cells to dynamically adjust the key components of resource management such as resource reservation, resource allocation, and call admission control policy to adapt quickly with network traffic changes. This chapter provides a comprehensive overview of various methods to explain the mechanisms for managing these key components of resource management for cellular networks.
