Distributed Markov Decision Process in Cooperative Peer Recovery for WWAN Multiview Video Multicast

Error resilient video multicast over Wireless Wide Area Networks (WWAN) is difficult because of unavoidable packet losses and impracticality of retransmission on a per packet, per client basis due to the well-known NAK implosion problem. In response, Cooperative Peer-to-peer Repair (CPR) calls for multi-homed devices listening to the same video multicast to locally exchange received WWAN packets via a secondary network like ad hoc Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) to alleviate individual WWAN packet losses. When videos of the interested 3D scene are captured by multiple closely spaced cameras, each video can be encoded into a separate video stream and transmitted on its own WWAN multicast channel.
