Dynamic Bandwidth Management in Distributed VOD Based on the User Class Using Agents
Source: Dr.M.G.R University
This paper proposes a dynamic bandwidth management algorithm in which more bandwidth is allocated for higher class users and also higher priority is given to the videos with higher popularity within a class using agent technology. The popularity and weight profile of the videos which is used for efficiently allocating bandwidth is periodically updated by a mobile agent. The proposed approach allocates more bandwidth for higher class users and gives higher priority for higher weight videos [popular videos] so that they can be served with high QoS, reduces the load on the central multimedia server and maximizes the channel utilization between the neighboring proxy servers and the central multimedia server and lower video rejection ratio.
