Paper Abstract

Multimedia applications often involve a set of cooperating streams that together form a multimedia session. We propose a novel local QoS provisioning scheme for cellular networks that is aware of the relationships between the streams that compose a session. As a rule, existing schemes either allow composite streams to compete with one another for resources or else provide QoS to the session as an atomic entity, leaving to the application the task of managing QoS for the individual streams. Our new MUltimedia SessIon-aware Cellular (MUSIC) QoS provisioning scheme manages the QoS of the individual streams in a session, and with the knowledge of their relationships, it prevents competition between the streams. Further, by allowing an application-specified prioritization between streams in a session, MUSIC scheme features a significant improvement in performance over session-unaware schemes.
