Abstract

The fruition of multimedia contents has been revolutionized by the spread of broadband technology. Furthermore, the advent of the cloud is now moving the computational load, once prerogative of domestic devices, to remote servers. This is bringing achievements that were unthinkable only few years ago, like the provisioning of new multimedia services through the Internet. To guarantee a proper user experience, a low E2E latency and a high bandwidth are both essential. Unfortunately, this is difficult to accomplish in a shared and best-effort network like the Internet. We need to focus on the study and analysis of modern network protocols to identify viable solutions for a suitable user experience. This is especially the case of QUIC, a recent transport protocol able to reduce significantly some issues mentioned above. Our aim is to explore QUIC and its integration into a Smart Access Point, enabling a better management of heterogeneous co-existing media flows.
