Our previous study proposed a channel utilization method in Software-Defined Networking (SDN) enabled multi-channel wireless mesh network (SD-WMN), which utilizes all of channel resources efficiently. However, when different types of applications are transferred together, their QoE cannot be maintained because of differences in important factors affecting QoE among these applications. Therefore, in order to handle application flows more efficiently based on QoE, this paper focuses on QoE estimation for every ongoing flows through SD-WMN. Since some parameters required for QoE calculation cannot be obtained from OpenFlow, we estimate QoE based on not only the results from SDN-based measurement but also the estimated values of parameters. Finally, we showed that our proposed method is effective for video QoE estimation, especially in a case where there is no packet loss.
