The smart cities provide a better connection between services and citizens based on new Internet technologies. During the building process of smart cities, some burgeoning applications have been emerging and changing the daily lifestyle of people, e.g., live streaming applications. Especially, the live-soccer event applications have attracted much attention and can improve people's enjoyment of life to a great extent, such as the Europe five major league matches and FIFA world cup. For such

In this paper, we employ Software-Defined Networking (SDN) to make QoS awareness for the special live-soccer event applications, in which the QoS-aware routing mechanism is proposed, called LSEA. Meanwhile, delay, delay jitter, and packet loss rate are considered as three objects. On this basis, the improved Dijkstra routing algorithm and SDN-based disjoint routing algorithm are devised. Finally, the proposed LSEA is implemented over Mininet, and the experimental results demonstrate its feasibility and efficiency.
