HTTP Adaptive Streaming (HAS) is quickly becoming the dominant type of video streaming in Over-The-Top multimedia services. HAS content is temporally segmented and each segment is offered in different video qualities to the client. It enables a video client to dynamically adapt the consumed video quality to match with the capabilities of the network and/or(More)
With the number of players of massively multiplayer online games (MMOG) going beyond the millions, there is a need for an efficient way to manage these huge digital worlds. These virtual environments are dynamic and sudden increases in player density in a part of the world have an impact on the load of the server responsible for that section of the virtual(More)
HTTP Adaptive Streaming (HAS) is becoming the de-facto standard for adaptive streaming solutions. In HAS, video content is split into segments and encoded into multiple qualities, such that the quality of a video can be dynamically adapted during the HTTP download process. This has given rise to intelligent video players that strive to maximize Quality of(More)
The recent emergence of multimedia services, such as Broadcast TV and Video on Demand over traditional twisted pair access networks, has complicated the network management in order to guarantee a decent Quality of Experience (QoE) for each user. The huge amount of services and the wide variety of service specifics require a QoE management on a per-user and(More)
As Massively Multiplayer Online Games enjoy a huge popularity and are played by tens of thousands of players simultaneously, an efficient software architecture is needed to cope with the dynamically changing loads at the server side. In this paper we discuss a novel way to support this kind of application by dividing the virtual world into several parts,(More)
In this paper an overlay network for end-to-end QoE management is presented. The goal of this infrastructure is QoE optimization by routing around failures in the IP network and optimizing the bandwidth usage on the last mile to the client. The overlay network consists of components that are located both in the core and at the edge of the network. A number(More)
