Bandwidth is an extremely valuable and scarce resource in wireless networks. Therefore efficient bandwidth management plays an important role in determining network performance. Adaptive bandwidth reservation and borrowing algorithms are proposed for multimedia cellular networks here. Based on the well known game-theoretic concept of bargaining, wireless bandwidth is controlled as efficiently as possible while ensuring quality-of-service (QoS) guarantees for higher-priority traffic services. Under dynamic network condition changes, control decisions in the proposed algorithms are made adaptively to strike a well-balanced network performance. This dynamic online approach can provide adaptability, feasibility and efficiency for real-world network operations. With a simulation study, the proposed scheme approximates an optimised solution under widely diverse traffic load intensities.
