Protocol Support for Live Streaming Media


Archway 2 - 1:00 pm, Friday 7 March


Delivering live streaming content over the Internet requires low delay and smooth packet transmission rate. TCP introduces rate oscillations and requires more buffering and bandwidth to sustain uninterrupted playback.

In this talk I will introduce a new framework which facilitates streaming flows. The proposed solution provides a smoother rate control than TCP and improves streaming performance based on cross layer feedback between the transport protocol and streaming server. The performance has been illustrated using the network simulator, ns-2.

Part of this talk will be presented at the IEEE 22nd International Conference on Advanced Information Networking and Applications (AINA 2008), Okinawa, Japan later this month.

About the Speaker:

Syed Hasan is a PhD student (funded by the Commonwealth Scholarship) at the Department of Computer Science, University of Otago. He is also a lecturer (currently on leave) at the University of Dhaka, Bangladesh.
