Abstract

In this work, we propose and evaluate mechanisms for the multiplexing and the integrated delivery of various traffic types such as video, data and voice, over a wireless cellular high-speed packet switched network. Two different scenarios are examined where the video traffic results from videoconference sessions and high-quality media playback, respectively. In both cases we focus on the uplink channel and we thoroughly investigate, by using actual MPEG-4 video streams, the system's performance under a variety of possible loads. Our goal is to achieve high-aggregate channel throughput while preserving the quality of service requirements of each traffic type.
