Constant Delay Queuing for Jitter-Sensitive IPTV Distribution on Home Network
This paper presents a renovative priority queuing algorithm for jitter-sensitive MPEG-2 Transport Stream distribution on home network. Upon the dissemination of broadband access networks, there are many technical studies of IP-based video distribution (IPTV). In addition, it is becoming common for individual residences to use Ethernet home networks to interconnect PCs and home appliances. Under these circumstances, the home network will be a common traffic channel for them within residences. In this paper, the authors propose a Constant Delay Queuing (CDQ) scheduler to suppress the forwarding delay jitter, which is suitable for consumer Ethernet hubs to distribute the IPTV flow on home networks.
