Multimedia transmission is widely available over wired networks. With the advent of low-cost WLAN devices, the wireless delivery of multimedia content is highly desirable. However, for media requiring low end-to-end latency, the use of WLAN technology introduces many significant challenges. These challenges are further enhanced if multicast/broadcast transmission is employed to serve a wide range of wireless terminals. This paper provides an understanding of the practical issues associated with WLAN multimedia transmission. A cross-layer measurement programme is performed to identify design issues for low-cost off-the-shelf WLAN multimedia systems. Problems identified include i) broadcast/multicast transmission using the slowest link-speed, ii) common link adaptation mechanisms for all clients, iii) lack of a call admission policy, and iv) irreducible PER even in good channel conditions.
