Abstract

The development of pricing schemes that account for the specific challenges in streaming video to wireless clients is one of the key requirements for making wireless video services economically viable. In this paper we develop a conceptual framework for the pricing of wireless video streaming. Our framework incorporates the quality of the delivered video in the given networking context in an earnings model and captures the costs for the video service in a cost model. We discuss these models in the context of cellular, WLAN, and multi-hop wireless networks. We illustrate the developed pricing framework through numerical experiments with videos of a range of quality levels.
