Abstract

In the paper, we consider real-time video streaming over an IEEE 802.11 network in the presence of short-term channel failures. The failures can dramatically decrease the received video quality at all network stations, even if the channel fails for one station only. In order to assist real-time video traffic to overcome short-term channel failures and to minimize video quality damage, we present the p-persistent queue management policy and propose a strategy for adaptive tuning the values of probabilities p assigned to queued packets.
