The Q4HEALTH project, an innovation solution focused on the optimization of real time video for emergency services over LTE. The motivation is to study video performance in scenarios with the wearable live video for first responders, improving its response on LTE-A with an innovation focus on 3GPP release 12.

Challenges:

  • The inability of applications to negotiate a QoS agreement with the network
  • The delays introduced on live video
  • The appropriate scheduling algorithms on the access nodes
  • The service availability on indoor scenarios and the communication between geographically correlated entities

Thanks to the challenges and experiments proposed, is possible to provide information regarding the type of traffic as well as their traffic requirements to the Evolved Packet Core and the scheduler in the Radio Access Network.
