Simulated Evaluation of Peers-based Content Delivery Methods for Live Video Casting Scenario

Choong Khong Neng (MIMOS Berhard)

Country: Malaysia


Internet is expected to support more social and real-time services each day where users are no longer just content consumers but also content forwarders. They first download and later share them with different communities. Distributing contents to the expanding population remains as a challenging task due to the increasing number of users and contents. In general, there are two common methods for delivering content over the Internet, namely the Content Delivery Network (CDN) and Peer-to-Peer (P2P) network.

However, CDN requires a large number of servers to be deployed throughout the Internet that is expensive to service providers, while P2P network is challenged by distributing video with constant quality. Recently, hybrid approaches of both CDN and P2P were proposed and appearing in the literature. The aim of this paper is to study the performance of such hybrid approach on a live video casting scenario, and compare it against our version of hybrid CDN and P2P called Dynamic Mobile Server (DMS), in terms of throughput, bandwidth usage, and Peak Signal Noise Ratio (PSNR).
