A recently proposed global congestion measure for CDMA networks is applied to call admission control, call dropping, and band allocation in multi-carrier CDMA networks. It is shown to perform comparably with existing techniques for call dropping, and better than existing techniques for admission control and band allocation. Difficulties arising in the measurement of this parameter are also investigated.
