Multimedia Traffic Algorithm: Computation of Loss Curve

The explosive popularity of the internet has spawned a variety of video-based services, such as streaming video and video-on-demand (VoD). These video applications require and benefit from the network’s ability to provide Quality-of-Service (QoS) guarantees. However, the current QoS guarantees are usually in the form of bandwidth, end-to-end delay, or loss rate experienced by a traffic system. Many video-based services also utilize the loss curve, which characterizes the loss rate of the video stream generated by the source. The loss curve is used to determine the optimal amount of resources, when the video stream is transmitted over a packet network. This enables the desired tradeoff to be reached among the loss rate, bandwidth, and the buffer space.
