Open Video Datasets over Operational Mobile Networks with MONROE
Video is becoming a killer application for mobile users. DASH and WebRTC are the brightest stars in this context. To assess the performance of DASH and WebRTC, we use a large number of programmable network probes spread over several countries in the context of the MONROE project. The probes allow to analyze the end-user performance in a repeatable and controllable way over operational mobile networks. We have generated a large dataset with more than 300 video streaming experiments so far, and growing. Our dataset consists of traces from video streams, performance indicators captured during the streaming, and experiment metadata. The dataset captures the wide variability of video quality and unveils how broadband mobile access is still not offering consistent quality guarantees across several monitored countries and networks, especially for users on the move.We make both software and datasets (video data and metadata) publicly open.
