The purpose of this paper is to model quality of experience (QoE) of media streaming service in a shared fast-fading channel. In this context, the arrival and the service processes of the playout buffer do not have the same job size. We present an analytical framework based on Takács Ballot theorem to compute the probability of buffer starvation and the(More)
2010 has witnessed many public consultations around the world concerning Net neutrality. A second legislative phase that may follow, could involve various structural changes in the Internet. The status that the Internet access has in Europe as a universal service evolves as the level of quality of service (QoS) to be offered improves. If guarantees on QoS(More)
This paper studies economic utilities and quality of service (QoS) in a two-sided non-neutral market where Internet service providers (ISPs) charge content providers (CPs) for the content delivery. We propose new models that involve a CP, an ISP, end users and advertisers. The CP may have either a subscription revenue model (charging end users) or an(More)

Network coding has become a prominent approach to improve throughput of wireless networks. However, most of work in the literature concentrates mainly on 802.11-like random access networks. New technologies such as OFDMA (orthogonal frequency division multiple access), offer new opportunities for employing network coding. This paper considers how to apply(More)
—Our purpose in this paper is to characterize buffer starvations for streaming services. The buffer is modeled as an M/M/1 queue, plus the consideration of bursty arrivals. When the buffer is empty, the service restarts after a certain amount of packets are prefetched. With this goal, we propose two approaches to obtain the exact distribution of the number(More)
Dynamic spectrum sharing is a promising technology to improve spectrum utilization in the future wireless networks. The flexible spectrum management provides new opportunities for licensed primary user and unlicensed secondary users to reallocate the spectrum resource efficiently. In this paper, we present an oligopoly pricing framework for dynamic spectrum(More)
Analyzing transport layer operation and enhancing its performance over multihop ad hoc networks have attracted a lot of attentions. Although the fundamental reasons for the performance degradation of TCP have been studied for many years, the tight coupling between transport layer and the wireless MAC layer is still not well understood. In this paper, we(More)
— The paper has two objectives. The first is to study rigorously the transient behavior of some peer-to-peer (P2P) networks whenever information is replicated and disseminated according to epidemic-like dynamics. The second is to use the insight gained from the previous analysis in order to predict how efficient are measures taken against P2P networks. We(More)
