Abstract

Wireless network access and the exchange of multimedia flows
over the Internet are becoming more and more pervasive in the
everyday life. However, simple technological advances in terms
of improved network capacity cannot satisfy the increasing
demand of such services, since a paradigm shift from the
current Internet architecture is required. The EU FP7 MEDIEVAL
project tackles this issue by addressing novel architectural
frameworks and viable strategies to efficiently deliver video
services in a wireless Internet context. This paper reviews the
currently ongoing activities of the project for what concerns
wireless access, in particular the identification of useful
techniques for the considered access technologies (WLAN and
LTE-A) and the general definition of architectural schemes to
efficiently support video flows.
