Video streaming applications are expected to proliferate quickly in the next-generation mobile networks. To efficiently serve all users watching live videos in those networks, new technologies, such as Segment Routing (SR), play a crucial role in providing scalable and high-performance services. In addition, SR can improve the overall Quality of Experience (QoE) perceived by end-users.

This thesis aims to design and implement an SR-based algorithm for routing in mobile networks and validate it through a prototype. The prototype should include servers and clients modeled in a realistic topology. Furthermore, the clients should collect metrics (e.g., through a DASH client) of the achieved reception quality, such as payload_bits and resolution, and compare with traditional approaches.
