Over the last years a number of new protocols have been developed for multimedia applications in the whole OSI layer?s scale. In order to support better wireless user the cross layer design paradigm has been proposed. This paper presents the challenges in designing and implementation of cross layer adaptation schemes for multimedia transmission over wired and wireless networks. In addition, the paper proposes the basic aspects of a cross-layer adaptation framework for multimedia transmission over wired and wireless networks. The main concept is based on a “holistic approach” in which all layers participate to the adaptation process and make its own contributions. Finally, the proposed framework can support both wired and wireless receivers in one platform.
