In this paper, the problem of feedback and active user selection in multiple-input single-output (MISO) wireless systems such that the system's stability region is as big as possible is examined. The focus is on a system in a Rayleigh fading environment where zero forcing precoding is used to serve all active users in every slot. Acquisition of the channel(More)
In broadcast and multicast systems, Video programs are transmitted over a constant bit rate channel. Apart from bandwidth constraints, the control of each encoder involved in the statistical multiplexing has to satisfy several other constraints: minimum quality, fairness, and smoothness constraints. This paper proposes an improved control scheme for(More)
The control of the trade-off between encoding rate and quality of compressed video is a challenging task. This control requires efficient rate and distortion (R-D) models, able to describe accurately the behavior of the compressed video. R-D models should account for the dependencies induced by the choice of frame-varying quantization parameters (QP). This(More)
—Video streaming is considered one of the most important and challenging application for next generation cellular networks. Current infrastructures are not prepared to deal with the increasing amount of video traffic. The current Internet, and in particular the mobile Internet, was not designed with video requirements in mind and, as a consequence, its(More)
As a chain is as strong as its weakest element, so are the efficiency, flexibility, and robustness of a mobile network, which relies on a range of different functional elements and mechanisms. Indeed, the mobile network architecture needs particular attention when discussing the evolution of 3GPP EPS because it is the architecture that integrates the many(More)
—This paper proposes a control scheme for the quality-fair delivery of several encoded video streams to mobile users sharing a common wireless resource. Video quality fairness, as well as similar delivery delays are targeted among streams. The proposed controller is implemented within some aggregator located near the bottleneck of the network.
