A multicast-enabled delivery framework for QoE assurance of over-the-top services in multimedia access networks University of Antwerp
Over-The-Top (OTT) video services are becoming more and more important in today's broadband access networks. While original OTT services only offered short duration medium quality videos, more recently, premium content such as high definition full feature movies and live video are offered as well. For operators, who see the potential in providing Quality of Experience (QoE) assurance for an increased revenue, this introduces important new ...

Following the successful editions of MidSens 2006 (Melbourne), 2007 (Newport Beach), and 2008 (Leuven), wewelcome you again and hope you will enjoy reading the proceedings of the fourth edition of the international ACMworkshop on Middleware Tools, Services and Run-Time Support for Sensor Networks (MidSens 2009), which tookplace in Urbana-Champaign, Illinois, US.We continue to work on the definition of appropriate middleware architectures and ...
End-to-End QoS “Smart Queue” Management Algorithms and Traffic Prioritization Mechanisms for Narrow-Band Internet of Things Services in 4G/5G Networks Hasselt University
This paper proposes a modified architecture of the Long-Term Evolution (LTE) mobile network to provide services for the Internet of Things (IoT). This is achieved by allocating a narrow bandwidth and transferring the scheduling functions from the eNodeB base station to an NB-IoT controller. A method for allocating uplink and downlink resources of the LTE/NB-IoT hybrid technology is applied to ensure the Quality of Service (QoS) from end-to-end. ...
MidSens 2010 - Proceedings of the 5th International Workshop on Middleware Tools, Services and Run-Time Support for Sensor Networks, co-located with the 11th ACM/IFIP/USENIX International Middleware Conference KU Leuven
The proceedings contain 5 papers. The topics discussed include: DReL: a middleware for WSN management using reinforcement learning techniques; middleware for smart gateways connecting sensornets to the Internet; middleware clocks for sensing the physical world; a component-based approach for service distribution in sensor networks; and supporting re-use through semantic component interfaces.
