Wireless network traffic is dominated by video and requires new ways to maximize the user experience and optimize networks to prevent saturation. The exploding number of subscribers in cellular networks has exponentially increased the volume and variety of multimedia content flowing across the network. This article details some challenges in delivery of multimedia content over 4G networks for several application scenarios. To augment the increasing demand for video applications in cellular and wireless traffic, these challenges must be efficiently addressed.
