Chapter 7. Video Streaming Using FEC Over QoS-Controlled Networks

Introduction

In this chapter, we evaluate the performance of the synergy effect through inter-corporation between the application level (e.g., layered FEC) and network-level (e.g., RSVP/IntServ and DiffServ). Our approach focuses on how to optimally combine the source and network, in a cost sense, to obtain reliable or predictable (i.e., provide minimum quality), and best (i.e., most cost-effective), end-to-end quality in multimedia applications, especially real-time video streaming over QoS-controlled networks such as IntServ and DiffServ. To meet this goal, the application source and network cooperate.

Many previous studies in this area have been limited to a particular layer, such ...
