Abstract

In this paper, an analysis of the different techniques for supporting robust multimedia transmission over wireless media is given. The analysis includes Radio Resource Management techniques on the Physical layer, transmission techniques on the Network (IP) layer, optimisation techniques on the Transport layer and techniques focusing on the Application layer. Also there is a report on the selection of the most efficient solutions and the way these can be combined in an integrated and cross layer optimisation solution. The paper has been prepared following the results of the research performed in the context of the ICT project my-eDirector 2012 in order to support the robust transmission of live streaming services for the coverage of athletic events for large numbers of heterogeneous networked users.
