Video Modeling within Networks using Deterministic Smoothing at the Source

  title={Video Modeling within Networks using Deterministic Smoothing at the Source},
  author={Ness B. Shroff and Mischa Schwartz},
Video traffic is expected to become increasingly important with the large scale deployment of Broadband ISDN. In the literature, it is suggested that smoothing Variable Bit Rate (VBR) video traffic 18, 111 before transmitting it onto the network would help reduce the probability of packet loss. In this paper we show why deterministic smoothing at the source approximates the minimum achievable loss over the network end-to-end of all possible smoothing schemes. Furthermore, we develop a powerful… CONTINUE READING
