Most wireless networks incline to include FEC code (Forward error correction) to recover the corrupted packets without retransmission. The sequential packets transmitted over wireless channel are likely to be infected with various errors like noise or deep fading. In this paper, therefore, a frame-level FEC is added across packets at the application layer to define two analytical packet loss models. At the network layer level, Gilbert Elliot Model (GEM) and Extended Gilbert Model (EGM) are…

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.

Neural Network-based Video Quality via Adaptive FEC in Wireless Environment

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, and shows that a video quality can be adaptable to the tuned optimal FEC codes from ANN via the packet loss probability of the wireless feedback environment.



A Study of MPEG Video Transmission in Lossy Wireless Networks

An analytical model is used to derive an application-level evaluation metric, the Decodable Frame Rate (Q), which is more sufficient for the end users to evaluate the video quality than other network-level metrics, such as packet delay, loss rate, or delay jitter.

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.

Adaptive Packet-Level Interleaved FEC for Wireless Priority-Encoded Video Streaming

This paper proposes adapting the overall degree of interleaved packet-level FEC according to the display deadlines of packets, transmit buffer occupation, and estimated video input to the wireless channel, all of which address the issue of delay.

A model for MPEG with forward error correction and TCP-friendly bandwidth

An analytical model is derived for predicting the playable frame rate in a TCP-Friendly MPEG stream with FEC that characterizes the Group Of Pictures (GOP) and Forward Error Correction (FEC) that are part of the MPEG video transmission.

Results show that even with very high packet loss correlation, NEF outperforms end-to-end FEC and can improve decodable probability and message goodput dramatically.

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.

Mobile Video Streaming over Heterogeneous Networks

A simple cross-layer model is presented that leads to the optimal throughput to multiple users for multicasting video over a heterogeneous network and the broadband streaming system is compared to several candidate solutions based on originally wired network congestion controllers.
