In this letter we evaluate the performance of wide-band CDMA cellular systems providing different classes of multimedia traffic and supporting user mobility. A Markovian tele-traffic model of the user dynamics is developed. Constraints are imposed in the model which account for the multiple access interference among active users. Results are shown in terms of call blocking probabilities and average number of active connections. The methodology proposed is a useful tool for the design and planning of third generation cellular systems.
