In this paper a novel schedulability criteria is developed to provide Quality of Service (QoS) guarantees in terms of both minimum available bandwidth and maximum tolerated packet delay as required by the real-time traffic class. The contribution makes use of a measurement based admission control scheme at the base station of the 802.16m based 4G IMT-advanced network by considering the effects of various kinds of delays including the channel access delay, queuing delay and MAC layer transmission delay on the system's end to end delay. The paper also provides a way for the mobile station to proactively increase the chances of success of bandwidth grants by predicting in advance whether its bandwidth request will be approved by the base station, and then modifying or suspending its bandwidth request in case the chances of success is not favorable at that instant.
