Qadir, Qahhar Muhammad and Kist, Alexander A. and Zhang, Zhongwei (2016) A quality of experience-aware cross-layer architecture for optimizing video streaming services. Computer Networks, 102. pp. 38-49. ISSN 1389-1286

Abstract

The popularity of the video services on the Internet has evolved various mechanisms that target the Quality of Experience (QoE) optimization of video traffic. The video quality has been enhanced through adapting the sending bitrates. However, rate adaptation alone is not sufficient for maintaining a good video QoE when congestion occurs. This paper presents a cross-layer architecture for video streaming that is QoE-aware. It combines adaptation capabilities of video applications and QoE-aware admission control to optimize the trade-off relationship between QoE and the number of admitted sessions. Simulation results showed the efficiency of the proposed architecture in terms of QoE and number of sessions compared to two other architectures (adaptive architecture and non-adaptive architecture).
