Quality of Service (QoS) provision in home networks based on end-user preferences or requirements is an important and complex task. Current mobile devices with new communication capabilities have boosted the apparition of multimedia scenarios where users could easily create ad hoc multimedia sessions by friendly providing their requirements and preferences like QoS preferences. In order to dynamically integrate end-users QoS preferences or requirements when using such multimedia systems, end-users require frameworks which allow them to generate the required multimedia sessions. This work introduces an ontology based framework aimed at integrating end-user QoS preferences and requirements for multimedia services. A case study is presented in order to illustrate the use of this framework in the context of extended home networks.
