Abstract

In this paper, we introduce a monitoring tool which measures application-specific parameters. These parameters are used to predict the QoE and to perform resource management based on QoE thresholds. We demonstrate the tool for YouTube traffic in an IEEE 802.11 mesh network. Thereby, the QoE is based on the player video buffer size and the resource management can include rerouting, throttling of best effort traffic, or a gateway handover.
