Since the outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic, videoconferencing has become the default mode of communication in our daily lives at homes, workplaces and schools, and it is likely to remain an important part of our lives in the post-pandemic world. Despite its significance, there has not been any systematic study characterizing the user-perceived performance of existing videoconferencing systems other than anecdotal reports. In this paper, we present a detailed measurement study that compares… Expand

Measuring the performance and network utilization of popular video conferencing applications
TLDR
Three modern VCAs are studied: Zoom, Google Meet, and Microsoft Teams, which shows how they compete with themselves, with each other, and with other applications; and how usage modality (e.g., gallery vs. speaker mode) affects utilization. Expand

Video Conferencing and Flow-Rate Fairness: A First Look at Zoom and the Impact of Flow-Queuing AQM
TLDR
The flow-rate fairness of video conferencing congestion control is investigated at the example of Zoom and influences of deploying AQM find that Zoom is slow to react to bandwidth changes and uses two to three times the bandwidth of TCP in low-bandwidth scenarios. Expand
Dejavu: Enhancing Videoconferencing with Prior Knowledge
TLDR
Djavu is presented, a system that enables existing videoconferencing systems to alleviate the problem of poor quality and can provide a 1.3 dB increase in PSNR for the same bandwidth consumption, or equivalently save up to 30% in bandwidth to deliver the same PSNR. Expand
QoE-aware video resolution thresholds computation for adaptive multimedia
TLDR
A novel mechanism named ResCompute is presented, which enables to automatically compute threshold values up to which the video resolution can be decreased while still maintaining a predefined QoE level. Expand
The Impact of the COVID-19 Pandemic on the Use of Remote Meeting Technologies
We evaluate the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the volume and quality of firms’ daily usage of remote (video) meeting technologies. While per-firm daily meeting volume (minutes, number ofExpand
Updated Comparative Analysis on Video Conferencing Platforms- Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, WebEx Teams and GoToMeetings
TLDR
A comparative study of various video conferencing platforms mainly focused on Google Meet, Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Cisco WebEx Teams and GoToMeetings is provided. Expand
Salsify: Low-Latency Network Video through Tighter Integration between a Video Codec and a Transport Protocol
1 We present Salsify, a system for real-time Internet video 2 transmission that achieves 3.9× lower delay and 2.7 dB 3 higher visual quality on average when compared with 4 five existing systems:Expand
Bringing the cloud to the edge
TLDR
This work presents a new model for cloud computing, which it is called the Edge Cloud, that addresses edge computing specific issues by augmenting the traditional data center cloud model with service nodes placed at the network edges. Expand
COVID-19 Pandemic: A Usability Study on Platforms to Support eLearning
TLDR
The eLearning usability heuristics are applied to evaluate the major video conferencing platforms (e g, Cisco Webex, Microsoft Teams, and Zoom) and find which eLearning platforms are the most user friendly and the best suited for online classes. Expand
Evaluating the Meeting Solutions Used for Virtual Classes in Higher Education during the COVID-19 Pandemic
TLDR
This paper evaluates two of the most commonly used meeting solutions for virtual university classes: Webex and Zoom and showed that Zoom was significantly more attractive than Webex, although there was no significant difference between them in the classic aspects of usability or user experience.
