In this paper, we argue that significant performance benefits can accrue if integrated networks implement application-specific mechanisms that account for the diversities in media compression schemes. Towards this end, we propose a simple, yet effective, strategy called Frame Induced Packet Discarding (FIPD), in which, upon detection of loss of a threshold number (determined by an application's video encoding scheme) of packets belonging to a video frame, the network attempts to discard all the remaining packets of that frame. In order to analytically quantify the performance of FIPD so as to obtain fractional frame losses that can be guaranteed to video channels, we develop a finite state, discrete time markov chain model of the FIPD strategy. The fractional frame loss thus computed can serve as the criterion for admission control at the network. Performance evaluations demonstrate the utility of the FIPD strategy.
