Current peer-to-peer (P2P) file-sharing systems are mostly optimized for file availability. This paper investigates P2P architecture for video streaming in general, and the performance impact of data redundancy schemes in particular. In particular, this work show that maximizing file availability is not the best strategy for video streaming as another(More)
Multicast and peer-to-peer (P2P) are two common transmission strategies to provide scalable and cost efficient solutions for video-on-demand (VoD) services. It is noted that a native P2P mechanism requires small server resources and provides an insensitive delay to users. However, the bandwidth requirement inside the network is rapidly increased when more(More)
Managing large number of concurrent channels in a video server is the main barrier to implement harmonic broadcast (L.S. Juhn and L.M. Tseng, 1997) in real applications. In this paper, we propose a new transmission scheme denoted as peer-to-peer broadcasting scheme (PPBS) to decentralize the workload over a number of peer servers. To handle the dynamic(More)
In this paper, an enhanced peer-to-peer batching policy (EPPB) is developed for providing true video-on-demand (VoD) services in multicast environment. It is accomplished by exploring the multicast delivery coupled with peer-to-peer (P2P) transmission strategy for video streaming such that gets benefit from both transmission schemes to efficiently deliver(More)
