Exploiting Limited Upstream Bandwidth in Peer-to-Peer Streaming
In this paper, we propose a hybrid architecture to integrate Peer-to-Peer (P2P) streaming approaches with content distribution networks (CDNs). We further utilize Multiple Description (MD) coding in this architecture to address challenging issues in P2P approaches such as low peer upstream bandwidth and low quality assurance. The proposed schemes take advantage of the high availability of CDNs, the flexibility of layered MD, and the high scalability of P2P approaches to better utilize peer upstream bandwidth, reduce server load, and assure service quality. In addition, we evaluate the performance of the proposed approach through analysis and simulation.
