In this paper, we propose a cross-layer error control framework for robust and low delay multimedia streaming in tandem-connected IEEE 802.11 wireless LANs and the Internet. For this network configuration, we model the end-to-end delay and packet loss rate as a function of the automatic repeat request (ARQ) and forward error correction (FEC) error control mechanisms that are employed at the application and wireless link layers. The analytical model is used as the basis of a delay-constrained error control algorithm that adapts the protection level at the application and link layers so that the end-to-end packet loss rate is minimized. With extensive simulations, we validate the efficiency of the proposed cross-layer error control methodology for delay-sensitive pre-compressed video streaming.
