This STREP’s main goal was to effectively exploit the available bandwidth on wireless links (WLAN, 4G…) that is dynamic by nature, providing optimised solutions for multimedia transmission over IP-based wireless networks. To reach this goal, it was proposed to develop a scheme offering the possibility to let the application world (source coding, ciphering) and the transmission world (channel coding, modulation) talk together over an IPv6 protocol stack, so that they could jointly develop an end-to-end optimised wireless communication link.
