Adaptive Multimedia System Architecture for Improving QoS inWireless Networks
In this paper, we present an adaptive end-system based architecture for improving QoS in wireless networks. The proposed system adapts to fluctuating network resources by transmitting lower fidelity streams, chosen based on user preferences. Adaptation based on user preference leads to selection of data that satisfies both the network (avoids congestion) and user (better perceptual value). The system does not have any dependency on the underlying network, making its implementation possible in any wireless network.
