Improving IPTV services by H.264/SVC adaptation and traffic control

Ingo Kofler, Robert Kuschnig, Hermann Hellwagner
2009 2009 IEEE International Symposium on Broadband Multimedia Systems and Broadcasting  
The Hard Reservation Policy (HRP) performs admission control and adaptation on the video streams and does not modify video bandwidth allocation after admission.  ...  In contrast, the Flexible Borrowing Policy (FBP) restricts the admission control to the base layer of the SVC stream.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENT This work was supported by the Austrian Science Fund (FWF) under project "Adaptive Streaming of Secure Scalable Wavelet-based Video (P19159)" and by the EC in the context of the P2P-Next  ...

Rate adaptive multimedia streams: optimization and admission control

S. Weber, Gustavo de Veciana
2005 IEEE/ACM Transactions on Networking  
Optimal and practical mechanisms to maximize the customer average quality of service (QoS), defined in terms of a normalized time average received rate, are established.  ...  This implies that dynamic adaptation may be unnecessary for large capacity networks with appropriate call admission.  ...  Quality of Service Modeling quality of service for multimedia streams is a difficult, and largely unsolved, problem.  ...

Admission control for media on demand services

Martin Bichler, Thomas Setzer
2007 Service Oriented Computing and Applications  
Existing media streaming software includes only limited support for admission control by allowing for predefined static rules.  ...  Opportunity costs are based on resource utilization, service resource requirements, expected future demand for services, and the revenue per accepted service.  ...  We thank Siemens Business Services for their technical and financial support.  ...

2004 Mathematical Reviews  
We identify the asymptotically optimal admission policy for rate adaptive streams and show that it achieves an expected sub- scription level equal to the under the optimal dynamic adaptation policy.  ...  This movtivates the investigation of admission policies for rate adap- tive streams where a stream is given a static subscription level at the time of admission which it maintains throughout its life-  ... 

Energy-aware Management of Customer Streams

K. Aidarov, P. Ezhilchelvan, I. Mitrani
2013 Electronical Notes in Theoretical Computer Science  
To that end, heuristic policies are proposed for making decisions about stream admissions and server activation and deactivation. Those policies are motivated by queueing models.  ...  Energy-aware Management of Customer Streams. Abstract Customers submit streams of jobs of different types for execution at a service center.  ...  Financial support was also provided by the EPSRC project SIDE, which investigates the optimal use of computer clouds for stream processing.  ...

Dynamic allocation and admission policies for QoS-aware provisioning systems

Michele Mazzucco, Manuel Mazzara, Nicola Dragoni
2013 International Journal of Critical Computer-Based Systems  
We empirically evaluate the effects of admission policies, resource allocation and service differentiation schemes on the achieved revenues, and we find that our system is robust enough to successfully  ...  The middleware collects demand and performance statistics, and estimates traffic parameters in order to make dynamic decisions concerning server allocation and admission control.  ...  Of course, the allocation and admission policies are coupled: admission decisions depend on the allocated servers and vice versa. Moreover, they should be able to react to changes in user demand.  ...

2006 2006 40th Annual Conference on Information Sciences and Systems  
Such policies have been deployed in a variety of scenarios and are very attractive for a service provider.  ...  Analysis of the system is trivial for HP streams, and quality of service (QoS) is captured by the admission probabilities on the primary and secondary links (which are independent of the LP traffic).  ...  The opinions and findings in this paper are those of the authors and do not necessarily reflect the views of the National Science Foundation.  ...
