Classification and Comparison of QoS Specification Languages for Distributed Multimedia Applications

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Quality of Service (QoS) is becoming an integral part of currently ubiquitous distributed multimedia applications. However, before any QoS-related mechanisms and policies, such as admission control, resource reservation, enforcement, and adaptation, can be invoked, applications need to express their QoS requirements. A considerable amount of research has been done in QoS-aware Application Programming Interface (API) design and QoS specification language development for multimedia systems.
