Quality Oriented Adaptation Scheme (QOAS) is compared against other adaptive schemes such as TCP Friendly Rate Control Protocol (TFRCP), Loss-Delay-based Adaptation Algorithm (LDA+), and a nonadaptive (NoAd) solution when streaming multiple multimedia clips with various characteristics over broadband networks. Streaming efficiency is assessed in terms of loss rate, bandwidth utilization, number of concurrent clients and end-user perceived quality. Simulation results show that using QOAS a significantly higher number of simultaneous clients can be served than when using the other schemes given a target average end-user quality. This is while having higher bandwidth utilization. Testing results also indicate that higher performance is achieved when streaming to the same number of clients using QOAS than when other solutions are used.
