  journal={International Journal of Computer Applications},
Neural Network (ANN) has proven capability in wireless communications. Therefore it has been used for a variety of purposes and in different ways. This proposal strives to address QoS of video streaming for the cellular clients in Universal Mobile Telecommunication System (UMTS) through adaptive FEC based on ANN. The model aims to present the idea of configure and recover the corrupted packets in the video flow with a suitable Forward Error Correction (FEC) code addressed by the ANN. The…

An Adaptive Fuzzy based FEC Algorithm for Robust Video Transmission over Wireless Networks

An adaptive, Fuzzy based FEC algorithm to provide a robust video quality metric for multimedia transmission over wireless networks has been proposed to optimize the redundancy of the generated code words from a Reed-Solomon encoder and to save the bandwidth of the network channel.




A frame-level FEC is added across packets at the application layer to define two analytical packet loss models and numerical results point out that the EGM-FEC model introduces a robust measure in estimating the perceived video quality in particular at higher packet loss rate and lower effect of packet correlation.

Rate control for streaming video over wireless

This work proposes multiple TFRC connections as an end-to-end rate control solution for wireless video streaming and shows that this approach not only avoids modifications to the network infrastructure or network protocol, but also results in full utilization of the wireless channel.

An analytical adaptive model for wireless link svia heuristic TCP/FEC functions is proposed with chosen modulation format for transporting mobile MPEG-4 video and simulation results show that a video quality can dynamically adapt to the optimal FEC codes at an appropriate selection for modulation scaling in the radio-link layer.

A new (and a rather simple and elegant) method for evaluating any desired loss/recovery probability measure for the Gilbert channel model is presented and the impact of the loss burst length on the performance of NEF and end-to-end FEC over multi-hop wireless channels are analyzed and presented.

Impact of RLC losses on quality prediction for H.264 video over UMTS networks

A learning model based on Adaptive Neural Fuzzy Inference System (ANFIS) is proposed that takes into account the RLC loss models to predict the video quality in terms of the Mean Opinion Score (MOS) and is validated with unseen dataset.

Dynamic Switching between Adaptive FEC Protocols for Reliable Multi-Source Streaming

This paper designed and implemented a dynamic FEC (D-FEC) protocol that has the ability to dynamically switch between 4 different FEC techniques to adapt to varying network conditions and shows the feasibility of the concept of switching FEC schemes during a streaming session.

Error Control in Wireless Sensor Networks : A Process Control Perspective

This work considers a Hybrid-ARQ-Adaptive-FEC scheme (HAF) based on BCH codes and Channel State Information and shows that HAF offers significantly improved performance both in terms of energy efficiency and latency, as compared to ARQ.
