Summary

In today’s access networks, the quality experienced by users of Internet applications is not always as good as possible. This is mainly due to the unawareness of the varying requirements of the services in today’s network. It cannot assess how the user experiences the service and consequently cannot adapt to the user’s demands. As a result, video streaming packets are treated in the same way as file downloads, i.e., real time services and best effort services are treated equally.

To cope with this problem we propose a dynamic cross-layer resource management for access networks with limited network resources based on application information. In our demonstration we show the applicability and the benefit of the proposed architecture with respect to the Quality-of-Experience (QoE) of the involved applications.
