Media-Aware Multi-User Rate Allocation over Wireless Mesh Network

  title={Media-Aware Multi-User Rate Allocation over Wireless Mesh Network},
  author={Xiaoqing Zhu and Bernd Girod},
  journal={2006 1st Workshop on Operator-Assisted (Wireless Mesh) Community Networks},
When multiple video streams are transmitted in a wireless mesh network, each stream needs to adapt its rate to the time-varying traffic in the network. We propose a media-aware rate allocation algorithm that adjusts the video rate based on both video content and network congestion. This is combined with cross-layer information exchange: the video agent relies on estimated link state at each hop along the path, as well as accumulated congestion increment reported by the routing agent. We discuss… CONTINUE READING
