Advanced Technique for Improved Mobile Multimedia Communication Services
The proliferation of smartphones is associated with the development of multimedia applications. Mobile multimedia applications involve audio, data, speech, image, video processing and distribution of over mobile platform. However, compressed media packets are vulnerable to channel errors, thus making it difficult to sustain good perceived video quality performance within limited resources. In this research work, the weight length and impact of different video packets are analyzed. Based on the analysis an advanced technique to enhance mobile multimedia communication services is proposed. The technique involves cross-layer optimization framework, utilizing Network Abstraction Layer Units Length and flexibility of IP-based mobile network in exchanging network information for error protection of sensitive media packets. The simulation results carried out with compatible multiple media streams of different priority levels and Network Abstraction Layer Units Length show overall significant improvement in the received media services.
