Multicast with Cache (Mcache): An Adaptive Zero Delay Video-on-Demand Service

  title={Multicast with Cache (Mcache): An Adaptive Zero Delay Video-on-Demand Service},
  author={Sridhar Ramesh and Injong Rhee and Katherine Guo},
A closed-loop (demand-driven) approach toward video-on-demand services, called multicast cache (Mcache), is discussed in this paper. Servers use multicast to reduce their bandwidth usage by allowing multiple requests to be served with a single data stream. However, this requires clients to delay receiving the movie until the multicast starts. Using regional cache servers deployed over many strategic locations, Mcache can remove the initial playout delays of clients in multicast-based video… CONTINUE READING
