Effective Video Streaming over MANET: A Cross Layered Approach

S. Madhu [6] | Dr. M. Bal Raju | Dr. P. Chenna Reddy

Abstract: Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) became popular communication networks with their utility in civilian and military applications. With advancements in electronics and communications besides increased availability of bandwidth MANET is found to be an attractive alternative for video streaming. Video streaming needs more resources like energy and processing power. In other words, MANET needs to optimize the resources for video streaming applications. In order to meet delay constraints with respect to video streaming which is of delay sensitive kind it is essential to have measures to cope with the expectations and quality streaming. Moreover the dynamic nature of MANET with mobility to devices can throw challenges. In this paper we proposed an approach known as cross-layered approach for improving video streaming quality in MANET. The proposed approach monitors different aspects such as congestion, delay constraint, and transmission rate. We proposed an algorithm to achieve quality video streaming and tested MANET with NS2 simulations. The results revealed that the quality of the streaming is improved significantly.

Keywords: MANET, cross-layer design, congestion control, link failure, video streaming
