QoE estimation for different adaptive streaming techniques in mobile networks

Resumen

El servicio de video es cada vez más popular por parte de los usuarios de redes móviles, además exige mayores recursos y prestaciones por parte de los proveedores de servicios de telecomunicaciones. Para satisfacer la calidad de la experiencia del servicio suministrado a los usuarios - QoE y mejorar el rendimiento de las redes, los operadores utilizan diferentes técnicas de transmisión adaptativa, las cuales presentan inconvenientes de interoperabilidad entre ellas.  En este artículo se presenta una comparación de las técnicas de streaming DASH (dynamic adaptive streaming over HTTP), HDS (HTTP dynamic streaming), HLS (HTTP2 live streaming) and HSS (HTTP smooth streaming) empleadas en la reproducción de vídeo en vivo por parte de un usuario en diferentes escenarios de prueba, en una red LTE emulada. La comparación de desempeño se realiza mediante la métrica de la MOS calculada a partir de la Recomendación ITU-T P.1203. Se presenta para los diferentes escenarios bajo prueba, la técnica de streaming que mejor desempeño obtiene.
