9780131414631: Quality of Service for Intenet Multimedia (IMSC Press Multimedia Series)

Simply put, this book assists engineers in assesing what the best methods of achieving QoS are and how to implement them. QoS networks have become a popular topic in recent years. However, in many books it is treated in a single chapter. In this book, the authors provide a thorough review of QoS provisioning mechanism and in-depth discussion on multimedia transmission over QoS-enabled networks like IntServ and DiffServ. This book presents several state-of-the-art methods, by which end systems (i.e. the traffic sources) and network service units (i.e. routers) work together to achieve the desirable end-to-end QoS for multimedia applications.

From the Back Cover:

Continuous media applications have exceptionally stringent QoS requirements, and QoS for multimedia will remain a challenge well into the future. The solution begins with service-differentiated networks capable of providing appropriate grades of service to each application. This book takes the next step, showing how continuous media applications and QoS-enabled networks can interact, and offering a leading-edge framework in which applications and the network can cooperatively optimize end-to-end QoS.

Coverage includes:

  • New video-categorization schemes for assigning video-packet-to-network differentiated service classes
  • Adaptive packet-forwarding mechanisms that improve cooperation between multimedia applications and networks
  • Dynamic QoS mapping-control schemes that let DiffServ networks deliver variable media streams with consistent quality
  • Fine-Grained Scalable MPEG-4-based video streamingoseamlessly integrating rate adaptation, prioritized packetization, and loss-based differential forwarding
  • Joint-source-network approach: layered video combining application-level UEP with network-level QoS support
  • New network service models for layered video multicasting across DiffServ networks

Whether you're a multimedia researcher, designer, developer, or implementer, these advanced techniques can help you optimize performance, content categorization, and quality control.
