On Distributed Multimedia Scheduling with Constrained Control Channels
IEEE CTN Issue: January 2012
Traditional multimedia scheduling approaches assume perfect control channels where each node has access to the knowledge of its neighbors. However, in practice the control channels are always constrained and nodes can only exchange limited information with their neighbors, e.g., the control packets are lost during the wireless transmission, and the node only has partial network information. In this case, existing distributed multimedia scheduling schemes cannot work efficiently. This paper investigates how imperfect neighbor information affects the multimedia scheduling, and reveals the relationship between the control gain and scheduling performance based on available network and multimedia information.
