Peer-to-peer network technology has overcome the difficulties faced in traditional methods for streaming the multimedia data with a centralized server. In a highly dynamic network, adaptation to peer churn in the case of excessive node leaves or failures is a problem because it increases the delay in receiving the data. In this paper, the authors perform an analysis of the existing tree-based and mesh-based approach for overlay construction and proposed an improvement to the mesh-based protocol for quick adaptation in a highly dynamic network. Here they have proposed an efficient mesh network by maintaining a neighbor cache which has the list of next best parents. This cache enables them to quickly adapt to the network changes by selecting the best parents.
