This work motivates and details the concept of QoE-aware sustainable throughput in the area of video streaming. Sustainable throughput serves as a mean to compare video streaming solutions in terms of Quality of Experience (QoE) and energy efficiency (EE). It builds upon the QoE Provisioning-Delivery Hysteresis (PDH) and denotes the maximal throughput at which QoE deteriorations can be kept below a quantifiable level, which in turn allows to compare the EE of different video streaming solutions on QoE-fair grounds. In this work, we particularly focus on delivery problems stemming from outage-prone links, as they are typical for mobile systems. Well-adapted to the nature of the video-associated data streams and disturbances, a stochastic fluid flow model is used that allows for straightforward calculation of sustainable throughput values. We also discuss the application of the sustainable throughput for comparisons among different streaming solutions and their offered QoE and EE, respectively.
