Abstract

QUIC (Quick UDP Internet Connections) is a streaming control protocol that proposed by Google in recent years. In order to study the ability of QUIC to support streaming video in a wireless mobile environment, we combine a DASH (Dynamic Adaptive Streaming HTTP) server and QUIC source code to design and implement a virtual machine-based testing and simulation system. The system can not only use real video traffic for streaming video playback, but also use the simulation system such as NS3 to introduce wireless network features. Based on the system, we perform a simulation analysis on the proposed QUIC stream video improvement strategy for large-delay ACK discarding (LDAD). The results demonstrate that the simulation platform can help to understand and investigate the interaction between streaming video and QUIC in-depth.
