Abstract

We describe the {\adimus} architecture which addresses the problem of maintaining the subjective quality of multimedia streaming for a mobile user. In contrast to other works, the entire end-to-end path of the video stream is considered. Adaptation mechanisms for maintaining quality include time-critical handovers, overlay routing and network estimation techniques. Our architecture is built on overlays that provides the necessary functionality for a video streaming service. The paper highlights the key components that ADIMUS advocates to support quality streaming from server to mobile client.
