The Case for Streaming Multimedia with TCP [chapter]

Charles Krasic, Kang Li, Jonathan Walpole
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
In this paper, we revisit and challenge the dogma that TCP is an undesirable choice for streaming multimedia, video in particular.  ...  For some time, the common view held that neither TCP nor UDP, the Internet's main transport protocols, are adequate for video applications.  ...  Anti-TCP Dogma Numerous works on streaming video have asserted that TCP is undesirable for multimedia streaming, yet propose alternate solutions compatible with the same best-effort IP infrastructure  ...

Smartphone energy consumption models for multimedia services using multipath TCP

Tao Ding, Zhenhui Yuan, Shengyang Chen, Gabriel-Miro Muntean
2014 2014 IEEE 11th Consumer Communications and Networking Conference (CCNC)  
In this paper, we demonstrate that smartphones with MPTCP support consume more energy than those with regular TCP when using the same service and the same network interface.  ...  The proposed energy consumption models consider four different multimedia-based services (i.e. video streaming, voice over IP, web-browsing and file download) in 3G and WiFi networks when MPTCP or regular  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENT The authors would like to acknowledge the support of Ericsson and Enterprise Ireland Innovation Partnership Programme.  ...
