Analysis of simulated models has become a veritable tool for investigating network behavioral patterns vis-à-vis transmitted content. The streaming video research domain employs modeling extensively due to availability of relevant tools. A vast majority of which are presented on the FOSS platform. The transmission of audio and video streaming services over different media is becoming ever more popular. This widespread increase is accompanied by the difficult task of maintaining the QoS of streaming video. The use of very accurate coding techniques for transmissions over wireless networks alone cannot guarantee a complete eradication of distortions characteristic of the video signal. A software-hardware composite system has been developed for investigating the effect of single bit error and bit packet errors in wideband wireless access systems on the quality of H.264/AVC standard video streams. Numerical results of the modeling and analysis of the effect of interference robustness on quality of video streaming are presented and discussed. Analytic results also suggest that the Markov model of packetization of error obtained from a real network for streaming video can be used in the simulations of transmission of video across networks in the hardware-software complex developed by the authors in a previous work.
