Optimisation of Multimedia Over Wireless IP Links Via X-Layer Design
This paper presents the solution designed by the ICT FP7 OPTIMIX project to enable enhanced multimedia streaming in a point to multi-point context on wireless heterogeneous systems. OPTIMIX approach is to introduce new control blocks, i.e., controllers and observer, to efficiently handle the optimization of the multimedia transmissions. The design of the controllers and of the signalling system, used to transfer feedbacks between different network entities, is described in this paper. Finally simulation results as well as the test-bed that will be realized in the third year of the project are also presented.
