Network Requirements and for Online Game Streaming

My research focus is to test and determine the minimum network quality requirements which must be met in order to allow cloud-based interactive media services, such as cloud gaming that will allow it to work.

The game itself is run on a server and the actual gaming> video is streamed to the player over the internet while the player’s control inputs are streamed back to the server is called a cloud-based gaming service.  High levels of network service quality are needed for this interactive system.

The determining of how various measures of network performance affects the quality of this type of service and therefore determines what the minimum quality of service requirements are for cloud-based gaming and that will be the goal.
