Name: 
End-to-End QoS through Integrated Management of Content, Networks and Terminals (Real Time Dynamic Bandwidth Optimisation in Satellite Networks)
Acronym: 
ENTHRONE

The ENTHRONE project proposes an integrated management solution which covers an entire audio-visual service distribution chain, including content generation and protection, distribution across networks and reception at user terminals. The aim is not to unify or impose a strategy on each individual entity of the chain, but to harmonise their functionality, in order to support an end-to-end QoS architecture over heterogeneous networks, applied to a variety of audio-visuals services, which are delivered at various user terminals. To meet its objectives, the project will rely on an efficient, distributed and open management architecture for the end-to-end delivery chain. The availability and access to resources will be clearly identified, described and controlled all the way along the content distribution chain. The MPEG-21 data model will be used to provide the common support for implementing and managing the resources functionalities. The ENTHRONE project addresses the scalable generation, protection, distribution and usage of multimedia content and resources in geographically distributed environments. ENTHRONE is concerned with end-to-end QoS in terms of performance, at both the user and network levels, and with the mapping between these levels. Adopting the MPEG-21 framework in our project will contribute to implement the Universal Multimedia Access (UMA) concept, which aims at achieving interoperable transparent access to multimedia resources from any type of client terminal or network. A high-level goal of the ENTHRONE project is to bridge the divide between the content provision and the networking worlds, resulting in cross-industry co-ordination on both network and content management issues, and bringing focus to mutually advant
