Brian Meskill, a TSSG PhD student working in the FAME strategic research cluster recently presented a paper at the 2012 IEEE/IFIP Network Operations and Management Symposium(NOMS 2012) in Hawaii, USA. NOMS is the IEEE and IFIP’s premier conference in network operations and management and explores the hottest areas of information and communications technology.
The paper presents Brians work on revenue maximising server selection and admission control for IPTV Content Servers which is conducted under the supervision of Dr Brendan Jennings and Dr Alan Davy. This work looks at efficiently using the resources of an IPTV Content Provider to maximise the revenue generated whilst ensuring important Quality of Service (QoS) targets are satisfied.
