In this paper, we propose an efficient quality-providing scheme to satisfy delay bound and loss ratio requirements for real-time video applications. To utilize network resources more efficiently while meeting service requirements, the network resources are dynamically allocated to each video connection based on the predicted traffic and currently provided quality of service degree. With the proposed bandwidth allocation method, a fair quality of service support in terms of packet loss ratio and maximum packet transfer delay to each video source can be achieved. To avoid possible quality violation by incoming new video connections, we present a connection admission control based on the provided QoS for existing connections and the measured traffic statistics. Simulation results show that our proposed dynamic method is able to provide accurate quality control.
