Abstract

This paper investigates impacts of periodical burst packet loss on three typical streaming applications: YouTube, Internet Radio, and Skype, supposing a mobile network in a high-speed train. Although the characteristics of YouTube and Skype are well analyzed, the characteristics of Internet Radio and the characteristics of these applications under periodical burst packet loss have not been analyzed. First, this paper analyses how much these applications are tolerant to periodical burst packet loss. Second, this paper analyses correlation between application layer protocols and transport layer protocols. As a result, some correlations between transport layer protocols and application layer protocols were found. For example, in YouTube, if TCP segment retransmissions frequently occur before starting content download, a client tries to download the entire content with a single HTTP request while a client repeatedly downloads a chunk of the content with multiple HTTP requests under ordinary network condition.
