Recommended by Jianwei Huang We propose a cross-layer optimization strategy that jointly optimizes the application layer, the data-link layer, and the physical layer of a wireless protocol stack using an application-oriented objective function. The cross-layer optimization framework provides efficient allocation of wireless network resources across multiple(More)
— In this paper we introduce the concept of multiple description video transcoding (MDVT). MDVT converts a single description encoded video into two or more descriptions at an intermediate node in the network. The objective of our MDVT approach is to adapt the video transmission to a multi-radio environment where two or more independent transmission paths(More)
— This paper proposes a Quality of Experience (QoE) based cross-layer design (CLD) framework for High Speed Downlink Packet Access (HSDPA). The proposed scheme aims at maximizing the user satisfaction by taking advantage of the link adaptation mechanism of HSDPA and the rate adaptation capability of multimedia applications. The main contributions of the(More)
— Cross-layer optimization (CLO) promises significant gains in comparison to a conventional system design, which does not allow for information exchange across layers. One of the key challenges in CLO is the exchange of parameters between optimizer and layers. In this paper a model-based approach is presented that drastically reduces the amount of(More)
This paper proposes a cross-layer optimization framework that provides efficient allocation of wireless network resources across multiple types of applications to maximize network capacity and user satisfaction. We define a novel optimization scheme based on the Mean Opinion Score (MOS) as the unifying metric. Our experiments, applied to scenarios where(More)
— We address the problem of video streaming over multiple parallel networks. In the context of multiple users, accessing different types of applications, we are looking for efficient ways of allocating network resources and selecting network paths for each application, in order to maximize the overall systems performance. Our optimization joint problem(More)
In this paper we examine the performance of Peer-to-Peer (P2P) media streaming using Multiple Description Coding (MDC) and compare it with that of a Content Delivery Network (CDN). In both approaches multiple servers simultaneously serve one requesting client with complementary descriptions. This approach improves reliability and decreases the data rate a(More)
—We propose an application-driven multiuser resource allocation and frame scheduling concept for wireless video streaming. Our approach is based on joint optimization of the application layer, the data link layer and the physical layer. For this, key parameters from these three layers are abstracted. The abstracted parameters at the application layer(More)
Cross-Layer Design (CLD) is a new paradigm for network architecture that allows us to make better use of network resources by optimizing across the boundaries of traditional network layers. Previous work has shown that applying CLD to mobile multimedia communication systems may lead to significant performance improvements. In this paper we also consider the(More)
—The exploitation of multiuser diversity and the application of multiple antennas at transmitter and receiver are considered to be key technologies for future highly bandwidth-efficient wireless systems. We combine both ideas in a downlink multicarrier transmission scheme where multiple users compete for the available resources in time, frequency and space.(More)
