— Real-time Internet services are gaining in popularity due to rapid provisioning of broadband access technologies. Delivery of high Quality of Experience (QoE) is important for consumer acceptance of multimedia applications. IP packet level errors affect QoE and the resulting quality degradations have to be taken into account in network operation. We(More)
The estimation of quality for real time services over telecom-munication networks requires realistic models in order to generate impairments and failures during transmission. Starting with the classical Gilbert-Elliot model, we derive the second order statistics over arbitrary time scales and fit the parameters to match the packet loss pattern of traffic(More)
— Traffic engineering and an economical provisioning of bandwidth is crucial for network providers in times of high competition in broadband access networks. We investigate the efficiency of caching as an option to shorten end-to-end paths and delays while at the same time reducing traffic loads. The portion of HTTP based distribution of cacheable content(More)
We investigate statistical properties of the traffic especially for ADSL broadband access platforms, which have been widely deployed in recent years. Measurement traces of aggregated traffic are evaluated on multiple time scales and show an unexpected smooth profile with less relevance of long range correlation than experienced for traffic from Ethernet(More)
Multimedia content currently accounts for over three quarters of all Internet traffic. This increase in traffic volume and content availability derives from a paradigm shift from the traditional text and picture based Web, to more resource demanding audio and video content. A controversial driver for this development is content distribution systems based on(More)
