Quality of experience ties together user perception, experience, and expectations to application and network performance, typically expressed by quality of service parameters. Quantitative relationships between QoE and QoS are required in order to be able to build effective QoE control mechanisms onto measurable QoS parameters. Against this background, this(More)
This paper addresses the challenge of assessing and modeling Quality of Experience (QoE) for online video services that are based on TCP-streaming. We present a dedicated QoE model for YouTube that takes into account the key influence factors (such as stalling events caused by network bottlenecks) that shape quality perception of this service. As second(More)
In the planning of modern cellular mobile communication systems customer behavior has to be carefully taken into account In this paper two models dealing with the call retrial phenomenon are presented The rst model considers a base station with a nite customer population and repeated attempts A Markov chain modeling is proposed and a recursive solution of(More)
Changing network conditions pose severe problems to video streaming in the Internet. HTTP adaptive streaming (HAS) is a technology employed by numerous video services which relieves these issues by adapting the video to the current network conditions. It enables service providers to improve resource utilization and Quality of Experience (QoE) by(More)
Quality of Experience (QoE) in multimedia applications is closely linked to the end users’ perception and therefore its assessment requires subjective user studies in order to evaluate the degree of delight or annoyance as experienced by the users. QoE crowdtesting refers to QoE assessment using crowdsourcing, where anonymous test subjects conduct(More)
The OpenFlow concept of flow-based forwarding and separation of the control plane from the data plane provides a new flexibility in network innovation. While initially used solely in the research domain, OpenFlow is now finding its way into commercial applications. However, this creates new challenges, as questions of OpenFlow scalability and performance(More)
Crowdsourcing is becoming more and more important for commercial purposes. With the growth of crowdsourcing platforms like Amazon Mechanical Turk or Microworkers, a huge work force and a large knowledge base can be easily accessed and utilized. But due to the anonymity of the workers, they are encouraged to cheat the employers in order to maximize their(More)
This paper presents a new method for the estimation and characterization of the expected teletraffic in mobile communication networks. The method considers the teletraffic from the network viewpoint. The traffic estimation is based on the geographic traffic model, which obeys the geographical and demographical factors for the demand for mobile communication(More)
Data applications are expected to play an increasingly important role in the next generation mobile communication services. To plan these networks detailed models of data users with diverse applications are required. The purpose of this study is to provide practically usable traffic models for data users in GPRS networks. We start with a discussion of(More)
