Since most real-time audio and video applications lack of QoS support, QoS demand of such IP data streams shall be detected and applied automatically. To support QoS in LANs, especially in home environments, a system was developed, which enables self-organised QoS for unmanaged networks through host implementations in contrast to traditional solutions without network support. It supports per-link reservation and prioritisation and works without a need for application support. One part of this system is an automated traffic identification and classification system, which is subject of this paper. An efficient set of attribute meters, based on the Statistical Protocol IDentification (SPID), was investigated, enhanced and evaluated. We improved the performance, added support for UDP protocols and real-time identification. It is shown that using our implementation efficient near real-time protocol identification on per-flow basis is possible to support self-organised resource reservation.

    ABSTRACT: Most 802.11 WirelessLAN media transport networks communicate on a shared channel. Since bandwidth- and QoS-demands of new media content constantly increase, network capacities tend to be bailed out soon, if the entire WLAN spectrum is not efficiently exploited. The proposed multi-layer approach combines dynamic channel distribution with additional dynamic interface bundling for multi-interface mesh networks used for media transport. This novel distributed channel utilization scheme aims for a better support of QoS-related traffic as well as traffic on prioritized (gateway) routes in such networks.

    ABSTRACT: Consumer networks face the problem of lacking quality awareness. The quality of network connections is a problem, as well as consumers are overstained finding quality content of interest. The system proposed in this paper assures the quality of both aspects. We introduce a novel self-organised QoS system and integrate a hybrid personalised recommendation system, managed by a novel Internet router. We show that these features are the key issues to increase the quality of experience in consumer networks dramatically.

    ABSTRACT: 802.11 hardware has ultimately made its way into the electronic consumer market. But, especially in home net-works, it clashes with high quality demands of rich multimedia streaming applications, that WirelessLAN can only partly cope with. This work describes basic features and fundamental flaws of 802.11, particularly with regard to multimedia streaming and Quality-of-Service (QoS) requirements. To overcome cur-rent problems of missing bandwidth resources in wireless home environments, the presented work points towards future multi-interface extensions of 802.11-based networks, in combination with decentralized Wireless Mesh Network (WMN) structures. The work provides an overview of all relevant 802.11 and WMN components with reference to important research works and indicates basic design aspects, crucial success factors and challenges of a future QoS-ready, multi-layer system that combines the advantages of decentralized wireless networks and of multi-channel MAC usage.
