A Bandwidth and Latency-Aware Protocol for Streaming Multimedia Content
MetadataShow full item record
We design a bandwidth and latency aware application layer multicast protocol to stream multimedia content. This protocol considers network bandwidth heterogeneity, in which the cluster population is bounded by the capacity of the access point. The cluster range is limited by the end-to-end latency threshold. This protocol achieves high scalability by distributed and local administration. The applica- tion layer multicast tree is highly exible in the sense that the host adjusts its location in the tree based on its packet receiving behavior. Through the simulation experiment, we demonstrate that our proto- col achieves low latency, high reliability and high adaptivity, while incurring moderate control message overhead.
