This paper studies QoE improvement of Online games by applying the UDP/TCP multi-pathization method by SDN. The method can distribute packets for one stream to multiple paths by controlling the network with software with-out any new transport layer protocol. The author evaluates QoE for two actual online games using the multi-pathization method by experiments with subjects. The experimental results show the following. The authors show that multi-pathization by SDN is effective for online games.
