Executive Summary

Wireless Mesh Networks (WMNs) are emerging as a promising solution for ubiquitous Internet access with mobility support. In such networks, user mobility may lead to Internet gateway changes and, consequently, impact the performance of continuous media applications. In this paper, the authors investigate the impact of user mobility on the performance of Peer-To-Peer (P2P) video applications over wireless mesh networks. Peer-to-peer video streaming applications rely on the collaborative behavior of peers to assist the source in delivering multimedia content, reducing costs and increasing the scalability of video distribution.
