    In recent literature, network coding has emerged as a promising information theoretic approach to improve the performance of both peer-to-peer (P2P) and wireless networks. It has been widely accepted and acknowledged that network coding can theoretically improve network throughput of multicast sessions in directed acyclic graphs, achieving their cut-set capacity bounds. Recent studies have also su... View full abstract»

    NTUStreaming is an overlay P2P-based IPTV system that integrates innovations in both overlay networking and video coding for optimal user experience. The system consists of three key components: partnership formation, robust video coding, and video segment request scheduling. For partnership formation, a graph construction mechanism TYPHOON based on epidemic algorithms is developed to reduce disco... View full abstract»

    In recent years, there has been an increasing interest in peer-to-peer (P2P) multimedia streaming. In this paper, we consider constructing a high-bandwidth overlay tree for streaming services. We observe that underlay information such as link connectivity and link bandwidth is important in tree construction, because two seemingly disjoint overlay paths may share common links on the underlay. We he... View full abstract»

    The main purpose of many current peer-to-peer (P2P) networks is off-line file sharing. However, a potentially very promising use of such networks is to share video streams (e.g., TV programs) in real time. In order to do so, the peers in a P2P network who are interested in the same video stream may employ Application Level Multicasting (ALM). In existing P2P networks, peers may exhibit behavior wh...

    We consider the design of bandwidth-demanding broadcasting applications using overlays in environments characterized by hosts with limited and asymmetric bandwidth, and significant heterogeneity in upload bandwidth. Such environments are critical to consider to extend the applicability of overlay multicast to mainstream Internet environments where insufficient bandwidth exists to support all hosts...

    Increased speeds of PCs and networks have made media communications possible on the Internet. Today, the need for desktop videoconferencing is experiencing robust growth in both business and consumer markets. However, the synchronous delivery of high-volume media content is still a big challenge under a current heterogeneous Internet environment. In this paper, we present a multiparty videoconfere...

    While recent measurement studies have shown the effectiveness of P2P network in media streaming, there have been questions raised about the quality of service (QoS), reliability of streaming services and sub optimal uplink utilization in particular. P2P streaming systems are inherently less reliable because of churn, internet dynamics, node heterogeneity and randomness in the swarm. We present a n... View full abstract»

    Large-scale live media streaming is a challenge for traditional server-based approaches. To appropriately support big audiences, broadcasters must be able to allocate huge bandwidth and computational resources. The costs involved with such an infrastructure exclude all but the established content producers from exploiting the Internet as a distribution medium. Publishers of not-yet-popular content...

    An emerging Internet application, IPTV, has the potential to flood Internet access and backbone ISPs with massive amounts of new traffic. Although many architectures are possible for IPTV video distribution, several mesh-pull P2P architectures have been successfully deployed on the Internet. In order to gain insights into mesh-pull P2P IPTV systems and the traffic loads they place on ISPs, we have... View full abstract»
