In a peer-to-peer (P2P) overlay network, a large number and various types of peer processes are cooperating by using multimedia contents like movies. Multimedia streaming is a key technology to realize multimedia applications. Here, multimedia contents are required to be reliable and continuously delivered to processes in a realtime manner. In this paper, we newly discuss a heterogeneous asynchronous multi-source streaming (HAMS) model where multiple contents peers transmit packets of a multimedia content to a requesting leaf peer to increase the throughput, reliability, and scalability in P2P overlay networks.
