Multipath unicast and multicast video communication over wireless ad hoc networks

Wei Wei, A. Zakhor
First International Conference on Broadband Networks  
In this paper, we address the problem of real-time video communication over wireless ad hoc networks. For the unicast case, we propose a robust multipath source routing protocol for both interactive and video on-demand applications. Simulations show that our proposed scheme enhances the quality of video applications as compared to existing protocols. For the multicast case, we propose multiple tree multicast streaming as a way to provide robustness for video multicast applications.

We show that Serial MDTMR achieves reasonable tree connectivity while maintaining disjointness of two trees, and that it outperforms single tree multicast communication. Simulation results for multiple tree multicast communication with Serial MDTMR We compare the performance of our proposed multiple tree multicast communication using Serial MDTMR with that of multicast communication using ODMRP [11] through detailed packet-level simulations in various mobility and communication scenarios.
