Abstract
(EN)
A method is provided in one example embodiment and may include determining each station of a plurality of stations connected to a WiFi access point that are to receive downlink video transmissions from the WiFi access point, wherein the WiFi access point is connected to an Information-Centric Networking-based (ICN-based) network; associating each station of the plurality of stations to each of a corresponding ICN face of a plurality of ICN faces maintained by the WiFi access point; and managing a downlink transmission buffer for each station of the plurality of stations based, at least in part, a modulation and coding scheme (MCS) associated with downlink video transmissions for each station of the plurality of stations, wherein each downlink transmission buffer is associated with the corresponding ICN face associated with each station.

Un mode de réalisation de l'invention donné à titre d'exemple concerne un procédé pouvant consister à déterminer chaque station d'une pluralité de stations connectées à un point d'accès WiFi devant recevoir des transmissions vidéo de liaison descendante en provenance du point d'accès WiFi, le point d'accès WiFi étant connecté à un point d'accès fondé sur un réseau centré sur l'information (ICN) ; à associer chaque station de la pluralité de stations à chaque visage ICN correspondant d'une pluralité de visages ICN conservés par le point d'accès WiFi ; et à gérer un tampon de transmission de liaison descendante pour chaque station de la pluralité de stations en fonction, au moins en partie, d'un mécanisme de modulation et codage (MCS) associé à des transmissions vidéo de liaison descendante pour chaque station de la pluralité de stations, chaque tampon de transmission de liaison descendante étant associé au visage ICN correspondant associé à chaque station.
