Abstract

In this paper we propose and evaluate a Medium Access Control (MAC) protocol for the efficient integration of high quality video traffic with ftp data packet traffic over a wireless cellular channel of very high capacity. We envision a system where the mobile terminals are considered to be high performance devices with extended storage capabilities which can act like cache memories streaming multimedia material. Via an extensive simulation study we evaluate the system’s performance under a variety of possible loads which consist of actual MPEG-4 streams and ftp sessions, and we show that our scheme outperforms another, well-known MAC protocol for cellular networks.
