The greediness of multimedia applications in terms of their bandwidth demands calls for new and efficient network traffic control mechanisms, especially in wireless networks where the bandwidth is limited. In an enterprise-like environment, an additional burden is expected to be added to the network by screen mirroring traffic. Smart mobile devices are displacing personal computers in many daily applications but at the same time users still need to use a large display, keyboard and mouse. Hence, the transmission of low-latency, high fidelity video over a Wi-Fi link can lead to significant unfairness among users in terms of the bandwidth that is available to them, if this wireless video traffic is not accurately policed. In this work, we focus on the problem of policing screen mirroring traffic. We evaluate various classic and new traffic policing mechanisms, and we propose a new mechanism which is shown to clearly outperform all other mechanisms, including the widely used token bucket policer.
