With the deployment of the first commercial long term evolution (LTE) networks, mobile operators need to understand how quality of service (QoS) network indicators and codec parameters affect subjective quality in video streaming services as perceived by customers. [...] Key Method The proposed system consists of three elements: a streaming server, an internet protocol-level mobile network emulator, based on NetEm tool, and a streaming client. The main contribution of this testbed is the modification of NetEm…Expand

Importance of Cross-Correlation of QoS metrics in Network Emulators to Evaluate QoE of Video Streaming Applications
TLDR
Real-time cellular QoS metrics data is analysed, and there is significant correlation between several QoS parameters, which was used to create bespoke distributions for NetEm using different statistical methods such as maximum likelihood estimation and cumulative distribution functions, which showed better QoE compared to default NetEm configuration for same Packet Loss Ratio (PLR).
