Abstract

Delivery of multimedia services over heterogeneous wireless networks is a challenging proposition because of the diverse characteristics of the underlying wireless technologies. The problem is compounded further by the availability of a wide range of end user devices such as desktops, notebooks, tablets and smartphones. To provide a consistent and uniform Quality of Experience to the end user, we propose a context-aware service adaptation framework in this paper. The basic idea is to monitor the user and network context and leverage this information for adapting services to match the device and network characteristics.
