A Review of Server Bandwidth Saving Method for Peer-to-Peer Video-on-Demand System

Salehah Hamzah, Putra Sumari
Abstract—Akamai and Netflix are the most high performance Internet video delivery service provider with their efficient CDN infrastructures. However, due to the high cost of CDN deployment, strong incentives are created to find another lower cost delivery service options. Peer to peer (P2P) network represents less investment architecture that show high potential to reduce the dependency of CDN.A P2P based system shifts the load of content delivery from the content providers’ servers to the users. However, high consumption of server bandwidth often become an issue in P2P based streaming as user demand increase rapidly. This paper review two category of methods of server bandwidth saving: (a)peer’s bandwidth allocation method and (b) server bandwidth provisioning method which potential for P2P based video on demand (VoD) system. We then conclude our review with CDN-P2P hybrid architectures research towards becoming a high performance video distribution.

Index Terms—P2P video on demand, peer to peer network, server bandwidth saving, CDN infrastructures.
