Executive Summary

The demand for video content is continuously increasing as video sharing on the Internet is becoming enormously popular recently. This demand, with its high bandwidth requirements, has a considerable impact on the load of the network infrastructure. As more users access videos from their mobile devices, the load on the current wireless infrastructure (which has limited capacity) will be even more significant. Based on observations from many local video sharing scenarios, in this paper, the authors study the tradeoffs of using Wi-Fi ad-hoc mode versus infrastructure mode for video streaming between adjacent devices.
