We compare two representative streaming systems using mesh-based and multiple tree-based overlay routing through deployments on the PlanetLab wide-area experimentation platform. To the best of our knowledge, this is the first study to compare streaming overlay architectures in real Internet settings, considering not only intuitive aspects such as scalability and performance under churn, but also less studied factors such as bandwidth and latency heterogeneity of overlay participants. Overall, our study indicates that mesh-based systems are superior for nodes with high bandwidth capabilities and low round trip times, while multi-tree based systems currently cope better with stringent real time deadlines under heterogeneous conditions.
