    This article develops the concept of quality of user experience by focusing on requirements for its measurement and communication for use in industry. Whereas more typical work involves either modeling media quality based on technical measures or user subjective assessment of media quality, it is argued that QoE measurement should include objective measures of the process and outcomes of usage. Al... View full abstract»

    Since the first operational IPTV networks have been deployed, service providers and operators have struggled to make their subscribers happy and satisfied with their services. To keep them as customers in the long term, they have been looking for ways to identify impairments to the perceived quality of experience. It is now well understood that this can only be achieved if the service providers ha... View full abstract»

    High-quality services will be the most important competitive edge in next-generation Internet services such as the broadband Internet access market, which is now reaching a saturation point in many countries. This article presents an application of the House of Quality framework combined with the Analytic Hierarchy Process method for the service quality improvement of network services. The HoQ, wh...

    Existing quality of experience assessment methods, subjective or objective, suffer from either or both problems of inaccurate experiment tools and expensive personnel cost. The panacea for them, as we have come to realize, lies in the joint application of paired comparison and crowdsourcing, the latter being a Web 2.0 practice of organizations asking ordinary unspecific Internet users to carry out...

    Quality of experience ties together user perception, experience, and expectations to application and network performance, typically expressed by quality of service parameters. Quantitative relationships between QoE and QoS are required in order to be able to build effective QoE control mechanisms onto measurable QoS parameters. Against this background, this article proposes a generic formula in wh... View full abstract»

  • Could Skype be more satisfying? a QoE-centric study of the FEC mechanism in an internet-scale VoIP system

    The phenomenal growth of Skype in recent years has surpassed all expectations. Much of the application's success is attributed to its FEC mechanism, which adds redundancy to voice streams to sustain audio quality under network impairments. Adopting the quality of experience approach (i.e., measuring the mean opinion scores), we examine how much redundancy Skype adds to its voice streams and system... View full abstract»
