Adaptive Peer-to-Peer Streaming Over Hybrid Wireless Networks

In this paper, the authors propose a centralised Peer-To-Peer (P2P) streaming over hybrid wireless networks to mitigate the congestion at the Access Point (AP) in Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs). In their proposed architecture, an adaptive receiver-driven mechanism is used to coordinate the streaming from multiple senders. They also propose a peer handoff scheme and an AP handoff scheme for video streaming over hybrid wireless networks. The simulation results show that centralised P2P video streaming over a hybrid wireless network can achieve a much better quality compared to traditional WLAN deployment with heavy background traffic.
