Abstract
We present a control model, which provides response time and bandwidth requirement adaptation in audio, video, and application sharing multipoint IP teleconferences for emerging wireless multimedia communications. The model is based on revealing feedback controls for multimedia call preparation and subsequent real time connection control. Case-based reasoning memory is used to associate real time congestion (connection) controls with call preparation controls and user QoS profiles. Web agents are used to capture user and application multimedia call profiles observed at the application layer and transfer them into the case memory. RTP statistics are used to identify the connection management feedback controls for the network layer. Real-time adaptation at the network layer and above is made possible by using hierarchical coding techniques. The proposed adaptive management architecture is illustrated by a case memory representation of call preparation feedback controls, RTP feedback control tests for providing audio stream bandwidth adaptation, and configuration of integrated experiments.
