From 2D to Next Generation VR/AR Videos: Enabling Efficient Streaming via QoE-aware Mobile Networks


Ranging from traditional streaming to Virtual Reality (VR) videos, the demand for video applications to mobile devices is booming. In the context of mobile operators a challenging problem is how to handle the increasing video traffic while managing the interplay between infrastructure optimization and QoE. Solving this issue is remarkably difficult, and recent investigations do not consider large-scale networks. In this dissertation paper we explore the solution space of efficient video streaming over mobile networks.
