Cooperative Streaming on Smartphones over Hybrid Wireless Networks
Speaker(s) : Baoliu Ye (Nanjing University, China)
The significant progress in wireless communication and video techniques makes streaming services over smartphones increasingly popular. However, it is still challenging to provide large-scale mobile streaming services due to the heavy load injected into cellular networks. To offload the streaming traffic on cellular network effectively, we propose a P2P based cooperative streaming scheme over smartphones by exploring the optimized utilization of both WiFi and cellular networks. In the proposed scheme, we organize smartphones into an ad hoc network via WiFi interface and implement a multi-hop routing based streaming delivery mechanism to exploit the utility of WiFi with guaranteed QoS. In this talk, I will report our current work-in-progress on this work, including both the real system development/implementation and technical research issues.
