Evaluation of Quality of Experience for Video Streaming Over Dynamic Spectrum Access Systems
In this paper, the authors study the problem of quantifying the value of spectrum opportunities to secondary users in Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) systems. They especially focus on estimating the impact of key channel parameters, namely the activity patterns of the primary users on the expected quality of experience for secondary users accessing video streams over a DSA system. In their study they consider three basic types of video representing typical video content categorized according to scene change rate ranging from low-activity newscast to high-activity sports video. Through extensive simulations they show that given some information on the expected level of activity in the video, the duty cycle of the primary user alone can yield good predictors for the expected quality of experience of secondary users.
