This paper presents DONet, a data-driven overlay network for live media streaming. The core operations in DONet are very simple: every node periodically exchanges data availability information with a set of partners, and retrieves unavailable data from one or more partners, or supplies available data to partners. We emphasize three salient features of this(More)

Congestion in wireless sensor networks not only causes packet loss, but also leads to excessive energy consumption. Therefore congestion in WSNs needs to be controlled in order to prolong system lifetime. In addition, this is also necessary to improve fairness and provide better quality of service (QoS), which is required by multimedia applications in(More)
The peer-to-peer (P2P) based video streaming has emerged as a promising solution for Internet video distribution. Leveraging the resource available at end users, this approach poses great potential to scale in the Internet. We have now seen the commercial P2P streaming systems that are orders of magnitude larger than the earlier academic systems. We believe(More)
In wireless sensor networks (WSNs), congestion occurs, for example, when nodes are densely distributed, and/or the application produces high flow rate near the sink due to the convergent nature of upstream traffic. Congestion may cause packet loss, which in turn lowers throughput and wastes energy. Therefore congestion in WSNs needs to be controlled for(More)
The medium-access control (MAC) protocol is one of the key components in wireless local area networks (WLANs). The main features of a MAC protocol are high throughput, good fairness, energy efficiency, and support priority guarantees, especially under distributed contention-based environment. Based on the current standardized IEEE 802.11 distributed(More)
We present our design and deployment experiences with LiveSky, a commercially deployed hybrid CDN-P2P live streaming system. CDNs and P2P systems are the common techniques used for live streaming, each having its own set of advantages and disadvantages. LiveSky inherits the best of both worlds: the quality control and reliability of a CDN and the inherent(More)
With the wave of the Internet of Things has been sweeping, people's lifestyles are undergoing tremendous changes. Wireless sensor networks as an important part of the Internet of things plays a huge role, it is not only one of the most influential technology of the 21st century, but also caused a strongly sought after in academia and industry. The transport(More)
