The pace at which more powerful portable wireless consumer devices such as smartphones and tablets have been adopted has not been matched by the ability of mobile networks to deliver high-quality video streams consistently to such nomadic users. In this work, we propose CMT-NEMO, a novel concurrent multipath transfer scheme for the delivery of scalable video content to users in multihomed mobile networks such as those expected to be found in public transport scenarios. Recent research in this context has shown that the single largest limiting factor for perceived quality is the overhead introduced by path switching operations in multihomed mobile networks. CMT-NEMO eliminates the need for path switching and, by removing the associated path switching latency, provides a substantial improvement of 5.9 dB on average in PSNR when compared with previously proposed schemes.
