—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)
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) combines non-technical parameters such as user perception, experience and expectations with technical parameters such as application- and network-level Quality of Service (QoS). For service or network providers, it is important to understand the quantitative relationship between QoE and these technical parameters in order to(More)
Software Defined Networking (SDN) marks a paradigm shift towards an externalized and logically centralized network control plane. A particularly important task in SDN architectures is that of controller placement, i.e., the positioning of a limited number of resources within a network to meet various requirements. These requirements range from latency(More)
—There are currently two complementing and concurrent trends in the Internet. The first is the rise of video streaming and especially Video-on-Demand (VoD) as the most popular application for end users, expressed by a continuously increasing amount of video traffic. In this context, P2P is seen as a promising technology for providing video content(More)
Statistical anomaly detection (SAD) becomes an increasingly important tool for the early recognition of potential threats for security-relevant information systems. SAD systems heavily rely on the probing of potentially very large networks. Our contribution is an analysis of the resource requirements on the information sink which constitutes the bottleneck(More)
The MPEG-DASH standard allows the client-centric access to different representations of video content via the HTTP protocol. The client can flexibly switch between different qualities, i.e., different bit rates and thus avoid waiting times during the video playback due to empty playback buffers. However, quality switches and the playback of lower qualities(More)
In this paper we will investigate why and how Network Virtualization (NV) can overcome the shortfalls of the current system and how it paves the way for the Future Internet. Therefore, we will first discuss some major deficiencies and achievements of today's Internet. Afterwards, we identify three major building blocks of NV: a) the use of(More)
