Adaptive Cross-layer Optimization Based on Markov Decision Process

Z. Velickovic, M. Jevtovic


In order to satisfy QoS demands of wireless multimedia application it is necessary to make an optimization on several ISO-OSI layers in the protocol stack. In this paper an optimization cross-layer algorithm has been applied based on Markov decision process (MDP). The wireless communication system with one user has been optimized by the transmitting policies in order to maximize the throughput along with the optimization of the average value of the engaged power, satisfying the demanded BER and the average value of rejected packets. Simulation results show that the application of cross-layer design based on MDP is justified. Ill. 2, bibl. 9 (in English; abstracts in English and Lithuanian).
