Executive Summary

In home networks, it has been challenging to provide flexible and scalable media content sharing among heterogeneous consumer electronic devices. Upcoming industrial standard WiFi-Direct will prompt the popular WiFi-equipped devices to establish instant ad-hoc peer-to-peer (i.e., direct) connectivity. In this paper, the authors propose DOMS (Decentralized cOllaborative Media content Streaming) that realizes flexible media content sharing by exploiting collaborative segment-based streaming amongst WiFi devices via the temporarily-established direct links. They implement the DOMS prototype devices with embedded computing machines and verify its performance under several realistic experimental configurations.
