Cellular data traffic almost doubles every year, greatly straining network capacity. The main driver for this development is wireless video. Traditional methods for capacity increase (like using more spectrum and increasing base station density) are very costly, and do not exploit the unique features of video, in particular a high degree of asynchronous content reuse. In this paper, the authors give an overview of their work that proposed and detailed a new transmission paradigm exploiting content reuse, and the fact that storage is the fastest-increasing quantity in modern hardware.
