Improving VoD server efficiency with bittorrent
TLDR
Toast is presented, a scalable Video-on-Demand (VoD)streaming system that combines the popular BitTorrent peer-to-peer (P2P)file-transfer technology with a simple dedicated streaming server to decrease server load and increase client transfer speed. Expand
Zebroid: using IPTV data to support STB-assisted VoD content delivery
TLDR
The current research work on Zebroid is described, a potential VoD solution for fiber-to-the-node (FTTN) networks, which uses IPTV data on a recurring basis to determine how to select, stripe, and preposition popular content in selected STBs during idle hours. Expand
On TCP throughput and window size in a multihop wireless network testbed
TLDR
Recommendations on configuring TCP and MAC parameters are given, which in many cases contradict previous proposals (which had themselves contradicted each other). Expand
Storage optimization for a peer-to-peer video-on-demand network
TLDR
This paper explores requirements for efficient pre-seeding of video-on-demand (VoD) movie data onto numerous customer set-top boxes in a cable ISP environment and shows that a BitTorrent-like peer-to-peer data delivery system leads to noticeably greater reductions in uplink traffic and VoD server load than a weighted-random pre- seeding scheme.

Managing cellular congestion using incentives
TLDR
The results indicate a high level of compliance with economic incentives and disincentives and found schemes with probabilistic payments of higher incentive amounts getting more positive results compared to schemes with definite payments with lower incentive amounts, despite similar total payout. Expand
Peer-to-peer video on demand: Challenges and solutions
TLDR
This paper explores requirements for efficient preloading of VoD movie data onto numerous customer set-top boxes using mathematical programming algorithms that minimize uplink traffic, given a popularity model for various pieces of content and information about storage and bandwidth capacity constraints at the customer nodes.

Scholastic streaming: rethinking mobile video-on-demand in a campus environment
Innovations in micro-processor architecture and wireless technologies like 3G have given rise to the production of smartphones with computation, networking, and storage capacities that rival personalExpand
Probabilistic Diagnosis through Non-Intrusive Monitoring in Distributed Applications
TLDR
This paper extends an existing Monitor architecture, for probabilistic diagnosis of failures in large-scale network protocols, to a test-bed consisting of a reliable multicast protocol executing on the Purdue campus-wide network. Expand
MorphStore: A local file system for Big Data with utility-driven replication and load-adaptive access scheduling
TLDR
The design and implementation of MorphStore is presented, a local file system design that significantly improves performance when accessing large files by using two key innovations; a load-adaptive I/O access scheduling technique that dynamically achieves the benefits of striping at low load and the throughput benefits of replication at high loads.
