Plenary Talk (12.00 - 13.00)

"Network coding for quality of experience"

Muriel Medard

Massachusetts Institute of Technology

Boston, USA

Slide della presentazione


The use of coding is often associated with throughput improvements. Such improvements do not necessarily translate in commensurate quality of experience (QoE) benefits and, conversely, significant gains in QoE do not necessarily require significant increases in throughput. In this talk, we present some approaches that show how coding can improve QoE. We first show that coding can be used to show to bound the probability of interruption in networks, in a manner akin to error exponents. We apply these principle to stitch effectively cellular networks with 802.11 in order to obtain very low probability of interruption while accessing almost exclusively the 802.11 network. We also show how coding can avoid interruptions in TCP/IP, by coding over temporary network effects that can lead to significant service interruptions. We show through analysis and experimentation that such interruptions can be well avoided We conclude with some promising new areas for coding in the area of QoE improvement.
