Title: Method and arrangement in a communication system

Abstract: A method for performing admission control in order to offer assurances on forwarding quality in networks comprising setting a threshold for each link where the threshold defines a maximum sum of forwarding resources requested by applications for their application data flows, ADFs, on the link. The level of the threshold is chosen by utilising knowledge about multiplexing properties of the ADFs on each link and by utilising knowledge about the forwarding resources of the links.
