Research Institution
Over the past decade there has been a rapid growth of wireless communication technology. As a result, portable computing devices such as notebook computers and personal digital assistants have begun to take advantage of wireless technology, thus providingincreasing access to wireline multimedia applications for mobile users. For multimedia applications to be supported successfully in wireless networks, it is necessary to provide a platform that supports QoS guarantees between end-systems. This SBIR effortproposes a platform that can efficiently manage multimedia traffic over wireline and wireless networks using IP QoS provisioning techniques.The platform product of this effort will enable the use of wireless networks for transporting multimedia traffic.The platform will reduce the cost of building efficient wireless communication networks, which will have impact on both the military and commercial sectors.
