QoS-QoE Dataset - Predicting QoE Factors with Machine Learning (IEEE ICC 2018)

This page presents the dataset used in our ICC 2018 paper:
To build and evaluate QoS to QoE mapping functions, we have used a fully controllable simulation environment at both network and streaming levels. The simulation platform is based on the Adaptive Multimedia Streaming Simulator Framework (AMust) in NS3 which implements a HTTP client and server for LibDASH, one of the reference software of ISO/IEC MPEG-DASH standard.

Simulation parameters with AMust in NS3

On the star topology with a bottleneck link, as depicted in the figure above, we have simulated a large number of streaming scenarios varying the number of streaming clients and the bottleneck characteristics (capacity, delay, packet loss). After a month of simulations, we have obtained statistics for more than 69,129 video sessions with 51 features for each session. For each video session, we measure network and streaming level statistics:

1RequestIDContextStreaming session identifier
2NbClientsContextMaximum number of streams competing on the bottleneck
3BottleneckBWContextCapacity of the bottleneck
4BottleneckDelayContextNetwork delay on the bottleneck
5BottleneckLossContextPacket loss on the bottleneck
6DASHPolicyContextDASH policy
7ClientResolutionContextClient screen resolution
