Video-aware measurement-based admission control

Qadir, Safeen and Kist, Alexander A. (2013) Video-aware measurement-based admission control. In: Australasian Telecommunication Networks and Applications Conference (ATNAC 2013), 20-22 Nov 2013, Christchurch, New Zealand.


Using instantaneous aggregate arrival rate as an admission control parameter will contribute to either bandwidth under-utilization or over-utilization. Being bursty in nature and variable in rate, video flows might encode any rate between a range of minimum and maximum values. At the time the decision is made, if the measured rate is at the minimum value, the bandwidth might be over-utilized due to accepting more sessions than the link can accommodate. In
contrast, it might be under-utilized if the measured rate is at the maximum value due to rejecting more sessions than the link can accommodate. The burstiness can be taken into account by considering the past history of the traffic. This paper investigates the suitability of the average aggregate arrival rate instead of the instantaneous aggregate arrival rate for video admission decisions. It establishes a mathematical model to predict the relationship between the two rates. Simulation results confirm that the average aggregate arrival rate is a more
efficient decision factor for a small number of flows. Although it has no additional advantage for moderate and large number of flows, it still can stabilize the admission decision by smoothing the burstiness of a set of the instantaneous rates (within the measurement period) over a period of time.
