Content Delivery Architectures for Live Video Streaming: Hybrid CDN-P2P as the best option

  title={Content Delivery Architectures for Live Video Streaming: Hybrid CDN-P2P as the best option},
  author={Melika Meskovic and Himzo Bajric and Mladen Kos},
In the last years, with the help of high-speed and broadband networking, the content delivery service has been grown up widely. There are a lot of providers for online streaming via Content Delivery Network (CDN), Peer to Peer (P2P) network or hybrid CDN-P2P system. In this paper, we analyse a hybrid solution for real-time streaming: hybrid CDNP2P mechanism that takes the best of both CDN and P2P content delivery architectures. By adapting the best of breed of both worlds (CDN and P2P), we…

Optimization of Chunk Scheduling Algorithm in Hybrid CDN-P2P Live Video Streaming

The proposed chunk scheduling algorithm is based on a taboo search and optimizes the video throughput and the video delivery ratio and uses chunk playback deadline together with chunk layer dependency to discredit chunks whose deadlines have expired and those chunks that do not have the corresponding lower layer values.

Behavior Dissection of NGWN Live Audio and Video Streaming Users with Enhanced and Efficient Modelling

This research analyzes traces of user behavior collected from an operational system for user behavior modelling towards performance improvement in NGWN and provides insights for further measurements and analysis.



Analysis of a CDN–P2P hybrid architecture for cost-effective streaming media distribution

A novel hybrid architecture that integrates both CDN- and P2P-based streaming media distribution is proposed and analyzed, which significantly lowers the cost of CDN capacity reservation, without compromising the media quality delivered.

A transport layer for live streaming in a content delivery network

The design choices made during the evolution of Akamai's CDN for streaming media are discussed to ensure the network's scalability, quality of delivered content, and reliability while keeping costs low.

On next-generation telco-managed P2P TV architectures

This paper analyzes the TV viewing behavior of a quarter million users using real traces from one of the largest Telco-managed IPTV networks in the world and shows the synergistic strengths and the potential for various P2P IPTV combined architectures.

Hybrid content delivery network(cdn) and peer-to-peer(p2p) network

Using this hybrid method, CDN customer content may be sent from the edge network from a CDN, from the P2P network, or both, of the network.

A Case for Peering of Content Delivery Networks

This work presents a model for an open, scalable, and service-oriented architecture (SOA)-based system that helps to create open content and service delivery networks (CSDNs) that scale well and can share resources with other CSDNs through cooperation and coordination, thus overcoming the island CDN problem.

CoolStreaming/DONet: a data-driven overlay network for peer-to-peer live media streaming

This paper presents DONet, a data-driven overlay network for live media streaming, and presents an efficient member and partnership management algorithm, together with an intelligent scheduling algorithm that achieves real-time and continuous distribution of streaming contents.

A Measurement Study of a Large-Scale P2P IPTV System

An in-depth measurement study of one of the most popular IPTV systems, namely, PPLive, using a dedicated PPLiv crawler, which enables the study of the global characteristics of the mesh-pull P2P IPTV system.

Understanding hybrid CDN-P2P: why limelight needs its own Red Swoosh

In this paper, we quantify the potential gains of hybrid CDN-P2P for two of the leading CDN companies, Akamai and Limelight. We first develop novel measurement methodology for mapping the topologies

A peer-to-peer network for live media streaming using a push-pull approach

The unstructured peer-to-peer network GridMedia for live media streaming employing a push-pull approach was adopted by CCTV to broadcast the Gala Evening for Spring Festival 2005 through the Internet and attracted more than 500,000 users all over the world at that night.

Measuring P 2 P IPTV Systems

This work measured network traffic generated by the most common P2P IPTV applications, namely PPLive, PPStream, SOPCast, an TVAnts, and shows that all these applications generate different traffic patterns and use different underlying mechanisms.
