A Universal Distribution Protocol for Videoon-Demand

Appeared in Proceedings of the 2000 IEEE International Conference on Multimedia.


Most existing distribution protocols for video-on-demand are tailored for a specific range of request arrival rates and do not perform well beyond that range. We present a universal distribution protocol based on Juhn and Tseng’s fast broadcasting protocol. Our protocol performs as well as the best reactive protocol at low to moderate request arrival rates and reverts to the fast broadcasting protocol at high arrival rates.
