    The PHOENIX project main goal is to effectively exploit the available bandwidth on wireless links (WLAN, 4G,.) that is dynamic by nature, providing optimised solutions for multimedia transmission over IP-base wireless networks. To reach this goal, it is proposed to develop a scheme offering the possibility to let the application world (source coding, ciphering) and the transmission world (channel coding, modulation) talk together over an IPv6 protocol stack, so that they can jointly develop an end-to-end optimised wireless communication link. Innovative schemes enabling the joint optimisation over wireless links will be developed, including the development of flexible channel coding and source coding schemes, adaptation of existing source coding schemes and the development of novel optimised source coding mechanisms. The design of cross-layer mechanisms allowing the necessary information exchanges between the upper and lower layer of protocols stack in joint source and channel coding system will also be investigated. Finally, a global network architecture based on joint optimisation for future wireless systems will be proposed.
