Title

A Protocol Architecture for Guaranteed Quality of Service in Collaborated Multimedia Applications

Abstract

The role of multimedia applications in our day-to-day life has dramatically increased in the last few years. In this paper, we present an architectural framework for the distributed multimedia systems. The architecture consists of three layers: the application layer, the configuration and synchronization layer, and the network layer. The three layers are backed up by two backbone layers, namely, the database and the computational backbone. We present a precise description of each layer together with formal specifications using finite state automata.
