ABSTRACT In this paper, we proposed a novel algorithm to improve the service quality of H.264 video transport stream over a congested DiffServ network. The video packets are first pre-marked in the application layer during encoding at the sender end, where the importance of pre-marking is set according to the non-structural similarity of video contents. Next, the control of traffic flow is marked with colors according to the video pre-marking and the network conditions, with each color given different drop precedence in order to reduce the possibility of losing important video packets. At the receiver, we use frame copy method to conceal the errors if packet drop is happened. The performance is simulated and verified by the use of NS-2 network simulator. It shows that the quality of video transmission is improved.

    ABSTRACT: Video transmission over Internet can greatly benefit from adapting video content to diffserv network parameters, to better support the application requirements. In this paper, a novel content-aware packet priority ordering and marking scheme is presented for streaming H.264 coded video over differentiated services enabled networks. The scheme takes advantage of flexible macroblock ordering (FMO) coding scheme to group the macroblocks by estimating their contribution to current frame. Then for each video packet, a relative priority index at macroblock level (MB-RPI) is calculated and packets are pre-marked according to the MB-RPI. Consequently, video packets are treated differently when transmitting in a diffserv network. Simulation results shows that our scheme can achieve better video quality comparing to the legacy scheme.

    ABSTRACT: The authors present random early detection (RED) gateways for congestion avoidance in packet-switched networks. The gateway detects incipient congestion by computing the average queue size. The gateway could notify connections of congestion either by dropping packets arriving at the gateway or by setting a bit in packet headers. When the average queue size exceeds a present threshold, the gateway drops or marks each arriving packet with a certain probability, where the exact probability is a function of the average queue size. RED gateways keep the average queue size low while allowing occasional bursts of packets in the queue. During congestion, the probability that the gateway notifies a particular connection to reduce its window is roughly proportional to that connection's share of the bandwidth through the gateway. RED gateways are designed to accompany a transport-layer congestion control protocol such as TCP. The RED gateway has no bias against bursty traffic and avoids the global synchronization of many connections decreasing their window at the same time. Simulations of a TCP/IP network are used to illustrate the performance of RED gateways
