Abstract

As the rapid growth of wireless IP networks, wireless IP access networks have a lot of potential applications in a variety of fields in civilian and military environments. Many of these applications, such as realtime audio/video streaming, will require some form of end-to-end QoS assurance. In this paper, an algorithm WMPLD (Wireless Multimedia Packet Loss Discrimination) is proposed for multimedia transmission control over wired-wireless hybrid IP networks. The relationship between packet length and packet loss rate in the Gilbert wireless error model is investigated. Furthermore, the algorithm can detect the nature of packet losses by sending large and small packets alternately, and control the sending rate of nodes. In addition, by means of updating factor , this algorithm can adapt to the changes of network states quickly. Simulation results show that, compared to previous algorithms, WMPLD algorithm can improve the networks throughput as well as reduce the congestion loss rate in various situations.
