In this paper, Audio QoE assessment experiments were conducted by using network parameters such as packet loss and reorder. The network model was created by using three computers, which includes sender, receiver, and middle between Linux based router machines was configured. NetEm tool was used to disturb the on-going network traffic to real-time packet loss and reorder in the broadcasting environment. VLC player was used to broadcasting and recording audio from sender to receiver machines and audios were presented to users to listen, and assign ratings according to their level of satisfaction. The results show the user’s satisfaction level is decreased when packet loss and reorder level is increased in audio streams. The user accepted a certain level of network traffic disturbance, however, the increment of disturbance in network traffic damage the audio quality below the then acceptable level. This research work will help to cloud service providers to provide QoE to users according to singed in service level agreements.
