Executive Summary

Video content as one of the key features of future Internet services should be made ubiquitously available to users. Moreover, this should be done in a timely fashion and with adequate support for Quality of Service (QoS). Although providing the required coverage for ubiquitous video services, wireless networks, however, pose many challenges especially for QoS-sensitive video streaming due to their inadequate or varying capacity. In this paper, the authors propose a cross-layer video adaptation solution, which may be used for optimizing network resource consumption and user experienced quality of video streaming in wireless networks; thus improving the availability of video services to mobile users.
