Abstract

Throughput prediction is one of good solutions to improve quality of mobile applications (e.g., YouTube or Netflix) for video streaming delivery services in mobile networks. This is because such applications require monitoring the network performances to control content quality, thus guarantee quality of service (QoS) and quality of experience (QoE). In this paper, we propose a history-based TCP throughput prediction method incorporating communication quality features using SVR (Support Vector Regression). By taking history of communication quality features such as historical throughput and Received Signal Strength Indication (RSSI) into consideration, the throughput prediction error can be decreased. We conduct experiments with the proposed method and compare the prediction accuracy with a variety of methods in different scenarios of various moving modes of users. Results show that the proposed model could predict throughput effectively in various scenarios and decrease throughput prediction errors by a maximum of 26.47% compared with other methods.
