Mobile devices, particularly smartphones,
have become ubiquitous in today's digital landscape,
leading to the emergence of Smartphone Ad Hoc
Networks (SPANs) as a dynamic and flexible
communication paradigm. Within this context, efficient
video streaming is paramount for a wide range of
applications, from entertainment to emergency response.
This taxonomy, titled "MobileStreamNet: A Taxonomy
for Video Streaming in Smartphone Ad Hoc Networks,"
provides a comprehensive framework for understanding
the multifaceted challenges and solutions in this domain.
It categorizes key elements, including network topology,
routing protocols, quality of service, video coding, and
more, while addressing critical considerations such as
energy efficiency, security, and user interaction. By
organizing these factors, the taxonomy aims to facilitate
research, development, and optimization efforts,
ultimately enhancing the performance and reliability of
video streaming in SPANs.
Keywords : Mobile, Smartphone, Ad Hoc Networks, Video Streaming.
