Cloud-based entertainment is becoming a hot topic for researchers and practitioners. In this context, thin client or cloud based gaming promise to attract users with the possibility to dematerialize the console and let the user play any possible game for any platform through the Internet. Basically, the computational burden is left to the cloud while the user enjoys a fat video feed accessed through her/his thin client via the shared wireless gateway. Unfortunately, this model of interaction also raises new complex technical issues that requires specific networking solutions. In this short paper we aim at addressing the heterogeneous flow coexistence problem at the home wireless gateway. We propose a solution based on a TCP Vegas-like congestion control algorithm deployed on top of the home gateway. Our solution works out of the box with the standard protocols at server, router and client level, thereby making deployment straightforward.

Abstract

Cloud-based entertainment is becoming a hot topic for researchers and practitioners. In this context, thin client or cloud based gaming promise to attract users with the possibility to dematerialize the console and let the user play any possible game for any platform through the Internet. Basically, the computational burden is left to the cloud while the user enjoys a fat video feed accessed through her/his thin client via the shared wireless gateway. Unfortunately, this model of interaction also raises new complex technical issues that requires specific networking solutions. In this short paper we aim at addressing the heterogeneous flow coexistence problem at the home wireless gateway. We propose a solution based on a TCP Vegas-like congestion control algorithm deployed on top of the home gateway. Our solution works out of the box with the standard protocols at server, router and client level, thereby making deployment straightforward.
