Cross-Layer Packet Retry Limit Adaptation for Video Transport Over Wireless LANs
Video transport over wireless networks requires retransmissions to successfully deliver video data to a receiver in case of packet loss, leading to increased delay time for the data to arrive at the receiver. Delay constraint is one of the most important requirements in real-time applications. A video packet arriving later than the presentation time will become useless for the client. In this paper, we propose a cross-layer content-aware retry limit adaptation scheme for video streaming over IEEE 802.11 wireless LANs. Video packets of different importance are unequally protected with different retry limits at the media access control (MAC) layer. The error propagation effect of each packet is estimated to guide the determination of its retry limit. More retry numbers are allocated to packets of higher loss impact to achieve unequal error protection. Our scheme also analyzes the backoff time for each retry and then takes into account the estimated backoff time for retransmission schedul...
