Toward total quality of experience: A QoE model in a communication ecosystem

  title={Toward total quality of experience: A QoE model in a communication ecosystem},
  author={Khalil ur Rehman Laghari and Kay Connelly},
  journal={IEEE Communications Magazine},
In recent years, the quality of experience notion has become a major research theme within the telecommunications community. QoE is an assessment of the human experience when interacting with technology and business entities in a particular context. A communication ecosystem encompasses various domains such as technical aspects, business models, human behavior, and context. For each aspect of a communication ecosystem, various models have been developed. However, few models have been designed…

Towards a Generic Methodology for Building QoE Models

A methodological framework for modeling Quality of Experience (QoE) for media services in a generic manner facilitates understanding a service's QoE as a composite function of the performance of the underlying network, and the actual service implementation, under constraints imposed by some of the QOE-aecting factors.

A novel model is presented that defines a set of QoE factors derived from Web quality models such as ISO 9241 to assessQoE through five processes that are developed iteratively to model, monitor, measure, predict, and optimise QoEs.

Quality of experience for unified communications: A survey

This paper presents a quality of experience (QoE) conceptual model to the context of unified communications (UC) through summary, classification, and discussion of multiple influence factors (IFs)

A TEFSM-based Framework for QoE Evaluation of OTT Services

A new approach to model multimedia OTT services is presented, integrating not only the functional aspects of the service but also non-functional variables, which are classified into objective, subjective and business-related.

Mapping QoE through QoS in an Approach to DDB Architectures

The idea was to show the origin of first studies with correlated focus, which also have initial conceptualizations, and then propose a new model that concerns concise QoS definitions, grouped to provide a basis for QoE analysis.

Developing a Quality of Experience (QoE) model for Web Applications

A novel model (and associated software instantiation) that integrates factors through Key Performance Indicators and Key Quality Indicators is presented, and the mapping is incorporated into a correlation model that assesses the QoE of Web Applications.

From Packets to People: Quality of Experience as a New Measurement Challenge

This chapter provides an overview of the current state of the art of QoE research, with focus on work that particularly addressesQoE as a measurement challenge on the technology as well as on the end-user level.

Quality of Experience Provision in the Future Internet

This work deals with the satisfaction of the quality of experience (QoE) requirements in the perspective of the emerging future Internet framework with a real-time dynamic control procedure for the selection of the optimal service class association.

A Data-Driven Architecture for Personalized QoE Management in 5G Wireless Networks

A data-driven architecture for enhancing personalized QoE is proposed for 5G networks and specifically proposes a two-stepQoE modeling approach to capture the strength of the relationship between users and services.

Qualinet White Paper on Definitions of Quality of Experience

The concepts and ideas cited in this paper mainly refer to the Quality of Experience of multimedia communication systems, but may be helpful also for other areas where QoE is an issue, and the document will not reflect the opinion of each individual person at all points.

Results of a series of studies conducted are presented to analyze the overall perception of VoIP-based speech communication service quality from a user perspective to link QoS-related technical characteristics of IP-based multimedia services with QoE not only in terms of lab-QoE, but in termsof the value users associate with it.

Linking an integrated framework with appropriate methods for measuring QoE

A detailed and comprehensive framework that integrates both user oriented and technical definitions on Quality of Experience (including the related concept of User Experience) is proposed and a first step is taken at linking methods for measuring QoE with this framework.

A taxonomy of quality of service and Quality of Experience of multimodal human-machine interaction

A taxonomy of the most relevant QoS and QoE aspects which result from multimodal human-machine interactions is developed, which provides metrics which make system evaluation more systematic and comparable.

User measures of quality of experience: why being objective and quantitative is important

The concept of quality of user experience is developed by focusing on requirements for its measurement and communication for use in industry and it is argued that QoE measurement should include objective measures of the process and outcomes of usage.

Model-Based Approach to Measuring Quality of Experience

The proposed pentagram model consists of five factors, including integrality, retainability, availability, usability, and instantaneousness, and shows that the proposed model offers better performance in terms of quality measurement than the conventional method.

Using GOMS for user interface design and evaluation: which technique?

The previous work on GomS is synthesized to provide an integrated view of GOMS models and how they can be used in design and to provide guidance to practitioners about which GOMs variant to use for different design situations.

A model for measuring Quality of Experience

A model for measuring the quality of experience (QoE) of multimedia services and describes a framework for quantifying the model parameters by transformation into an XML document with discreet values is presented.
