    Real-time multimedia multicast over wireless networks is an exciting application that has generated a lot of interest recently. Its main challenge lies in the stringent bandwidth and time-delay requirements of real-time multimedia and severe impairments of the wireless channels. We develop a network-aware cross-layer design for multimedia multicast over heterogeneous wireless-wireline networks, th... View full abstract»

    Efficient peer-to-peer (P2P) video streaming is a challenging task due to time-varying nature of both the number of available peers and network/channel conditions. This paper proposes a novel adaptive P2P video streaming system, which features: (i) a new flexible multiple-description coding (F-MDC) framework, such that the number of base and enhancement descriptions, and the rate and redundancy le...

    This paper presents a streaming system using the scalability extension of H.264/AVC. The system provides a congestion control algorithm, which is supported by a channel bandwidth estimation running on the client. It uses retransmission only for packets from the base layer to limit the burden on the congested network. The bandwidth estimation allows the transmission rate to be quickly adjusted to t...

    Mobile intelligent multimedia presentation systems are limited by various constraints including mobile network characteristics, mobile device capabilities, and user preferences. Those presentation systems which incorporate remotely stored multimedia rely on the bandwidth which is available during actual content transmission on the connecting mobile network. One approach to deal with this is to tra... View full abstract»

    We consider the problem of multiuser resource allocation for wireless multimedia applications deployed by autonomous and noncollaborative wireless stations (WSTAs). Existing resource allocation solutions for WLANs are not network-aware and do not take into account the selfish behavior of individual WSTAs. Specifically, the selfish WSTAs can manipulate the network by untruthfully representing their... View full abstract»

    In this paper, a network-aware and source-aware video streaming system is proposed to support interactive multiuser communications within single-cell and multicell IEEE 802.11 networks. Unlike the traditional streaming video services, the strict delay constraints of an interactive video streaming system pose more challenges. These challenges include the heterogeneity of uplink and downlink channel... View full abstract»

    Past work on cooperative communications has indicated substantial improvements in channel reliability through cooperative transmission strategies. To exploit cooperation benefits for multimedia transmission over slow fading channels, we propose to jointly allocate bits among source coding, channel coding and cooperation to minimize the expected distortion of the reconstructed signal at the receive...

    A congestion avoidance strategy based on the concept of predictive path switching control (PPSC) is proposed for improving the quality-of-service (QoS) in real-time applications, and in particular in Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) applications deployed over the public Internet. The proposed PPSC strategy requires the dynamic prediction of traffic congestion levels over all available network p... View full abstract»

    We consider a community of multi-homed wireless devices, where each device has both a wireless wide area network (WWAN) interface to connect to the Internet and a wireless local area network (WLAN) interface to connect to its neighbors. Suppose users in the community are interested in receiving the same piece of delay-sensitive media content, and are willing to share their network resources. It is... View full abstract»
