Abstract

In this paper we evaluate different models for packet losses in wireless networks. The used model framework is given by extended Gilbert models, which are generalizations of the well known Gilbert model, a two state discrete Markov chain. It is further shown that the correlation of the packet loss indication process has a severe effect on the quality of streamed MPEG-4 video.
