In this paper, we analyze the performance of a signal-to-interference ratio (SIR)-based admission control strategy on the uplink in cellular code-division multiple-access (CDMA) systems with voice and data traffic. Most studies in the current literature to estimate CDMA system capacity with both voice and data traffic do not take into account admission control based on SIR constraints. Here, we present an analytical approach to evaluate the outage probability for voice traffic, the average system throughput, and the mean delay for data traffic in a voice/data CDMA system, which employs an SIR-based admission control. We make two main approximations in the voice call outage analysis-one based on the central limit theorem (CLT) and the other based on the Fenton's method. We apply the Fenton's method approximation to compute the retransmission probability and the mean delay for data traffic, and the average system throughput. We show that for a voice-only system, a capacity improvement of about 30% is achieved with the SIR-based admission control as compared with the code availability-based admission control. For a mixed voice/data system with 10 Erlangs of voice traffic, an improvement of about 40% in the mean delay for data is shown to be achieved. Also, for a mean delay of 50 ms with 10 Erlangs of voice traffic, the data Erlang capacity improves by about 50%.
