Abstract: Being connected to a wireless access point is not enough; in addition, adequate per-application performance is expected. To achieve high user perception, it is necessary to adapt the ongoing connection to the frequently changing network conditions. Not only collecting Quality of Service (QoS) metrics but analyzing these on a per-technology basis is vital and so far not questioned much. In particular, for each type of network, a specific performance metric that correlates well with the user ratings can be identified.
