Abstract

We study the capacity, i.e., the number of customers per cell, and the quality of service for streaming video in the uplink direction of a cellular Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA)-based wireless system. We advocate the use of TCP as the transport layer protocol for streaming video in a Multi-Code COM A (MC-CDMA) wireless system. Our approach is to stabilize the TCP-throughput for video transmissions over the wireless links by employing a recently developed Simultaneous MAC Packet Transmission (SMPT) approach. Our extensive simulations indicate that employing SMPT significantly improves both the video quality and the capacity when streaming video over TCP.
