—P2P video streaming is receiving enormous attention , and when video is involved, the efficient use of the network becomes a very important issue, specially if live applications are addressed. In this work we study properties of Push/Pull protocols for the exchange of video chunks in non-structured systems. Push/Pull protocols are a broad class of chunk(More)
—The peer-to-peer communication paradigm is changing the way the Internet works, and the perspective network and service providers are looking at the telecommunication business. P2P applications and networks are taking foot by the day, and new systems are proposed continuously with ever novel features and better performances. In spite of attention and(More)
Practical implementation of new P2P streaming systems requires a lot of coding and is often tedious and costly, slowing down the technology transfer from the research community to real users. GRAPES aims at solving this problem by providing a set of open-source components conceived as basic building blocks for building new P2P streaming applications which(More)
—Multicast operations across wireless networks have received much attention, involving network architectures that range from ad-hoc networks to structured multi-hop meshes layouts. The use for this purpose of the standard Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) protocol suite has been dismissed as non practical, or non feasible, noting that its straightforward(More)
Practical implementation of new P2P streaming systems requires a lot of coding and is often tedious and costly, slowing down the technology transfer from the research community to real users. GRAPES aims at relieving this burden, and speed-up application development, by providing a set of open-source components conceived as basic building blocks for(More)
