Admission Control and Scheduling for QoS Guarantees for Variable-Bit-Rate Applications on Wireless Channels

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Providing differentiated Quality of Service (QoS) over unreliable wireless channels is an important challenge for supporting several future applications. The authors analyze a model that has been proposed to describe the QoS requirements by four criteria: traffic pattern, channel reliability, delay bound, and throughput bound. They study this mathematical model and extend it to handle variable bit rate applications. They then obtain a sharp characterization of schedulability vis-a-vis latencies and timely throughput. Their results extend the results so that they are general enough to be applied on a wide range of wireless applications, including MPEG Variable-Bit-Rate (VBR) video streaming, VoIP with differentiated quality, and Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN).
