English abstract:
Over the last years, QUIC (Quick UDP Internet Connections) has become the default protocol for networked communication of Google services, heralded as improved successor of the prevailing Transport Control Protocol (TCP). While the deployment of QUIC is increasing, QUIC is also planned to be the foundation of {HTTP/3}, the next generation of the HTTP protocols, which drive almost all applications on the Web. Given these developments, this paper aims to raise the awareness of the QoE research community to the increasing presence of QUIC, which likely brings implications for QoE monitoring and management of networked multimedia applications, as well as for the overall QoE research agenda.
In particular, a major promise during the introduction of QUIC has been the improvement of the QoE of web-based applications (like browsing and video) by overcoming certain limitations and inefficiencies of TCP. In order to validate this claim, a measurement study was conducted to test whether the promised QoE benefits of QUIC are indeed noticeable for end users of streaming and browsing services. Surprisingly, no evidence for any QoE improvement of QUIC over TCP could be found. This way this paper aims to demonstrate how QoE research can and should successfully address relevant current and future developments on the Internet.
