Claim of US Patent No. 10,993,137

1. A method, comprising:generating, by network equipment comprising a processor, quality data representative of a quality of service for a requested service that is requested by a mobile device;
assigning, by the network equipment, a common guaranteed bitrate admission control threshold for a first pool of network resources that are common to a group of network services that comprises the requested service;
based on the quality data, comparing, by the network equipment, a resource value associated with the requested service to a dedicated guaranteed bitrate admission control threshold for a second pool of network resources that are exclusive to the requested service, resulting in a first comparison result, wherein the second pool of network resources is distinct from the first pool of network resources;
in response to the first comparison result being that the resource value does not exceed the dedicated guaranteed bitrate admission control threshold, permitting, by the network equipment, admission of a guaranteed bitrate bearer for the requested service from the second pool of network resources; and
in response to the first comparison result being that the resource value exceeds the dedicated guaranteed bitrate admission control threshold, comparing, by the network equipment, the resource value to the common guaranteed bitrate admission control threshold, resulting in a second comparison result.
