Streaming Media with Peer-to-Peer Networks: Wireless Perspectives
A book edited by Dr. Martin Fleury and Dr. Nadia Qadri
University of Essex, United Kingdom & COMSATS Inst. of Inform. & Technol., Pakistan
To be published by IGI Global:
This book concerns itself with at least two varieties of peer-to-peer (P2P) streaming: large scale streaming of IPTV over the conventional Internet, which can then be extended to mobile networks; and streaming over wireless networks, especially ad hoc networks. The latter are likely to be deployed in emergency scenarios when no communication infrastructure exists and in vehicular networks. As the Internet goes mobile, ad hoc networks will add capacity to overstretched cellular networks, possibly forming hybrid broadband/cellular/ad hoc networks. Commercial forms of P2P streaming tend to use super peers to reinforce the streaming network. They also seem to neglect geographical locality. Due to the potential anonymity of P2P systems and the risk of freeloading, security is important, though deployed P2P streaming systems are reported to give little attention to this issue. Nonetheless, special streaming attacks have been investigated such as stream pollution and denial of service. In fact, quality-of-experience testing of the mobile viewing experience can determine the content and other characteristics that are favored by viewers. This introduction can only give a flavor of P2P streaming areas of interest, which in this book we hope to extend to mobile, wireless networks.
Objectives of the book
* To explore the state-of-the-art in respect to extending P2P streaming to mobile networks.
* Act as a source for the academic and business community on the development of P2P streaming systems.
* Identify methods and techniques used in such streaming systems, especially for wireless networks.
* Show experimental results from such streaming systems that can act as stimulus for postgraduate research.
The target audience of this book will be composed of academics, researchers, and practicing engineers working in the fields of: peer-to-peer networking; video and multimedia broadcasting and distribution; broadband access networks; wireless LANs; cellular networks; and ad hoc networks, including MANETs and VANETS. Moreover, the book will provide insights and support executives and managers concerned with the provision of multimedia services across such networks. Thus, the book is expected to contain a mixture of up-to-date review material and research content, with background that orientates the reader with existing non-mobile provision.
Suggested topics include, but are by no means limited to, the following:
Peer-to-peer streaming over mobile networks --- admission control, super-peers, video issues
Overlay (unstructured or structured) organization for mobile networks
Case studies of mobile P2P systems --- routing, overlay type, lookup mechanism, size, node speed and so on.
Impact of roaming, node and network heterogeneity, energy consumption, multi-homing, and mobility churn
P2P for MANETs and/or VANETs
Multimedia content retrieval via P2P for mobile networks
Security issues in peer-to-peer networks, especially when extended to mobile networks
Heterogeneous networks supporting P2P streaming
Peer-to-peer over broadband, cellular, and/or wireless LANs
Live video, IPTV, over-the-top TV, and/or video-on-demand with peer-to-peer
Robust forms of video for P2P mobile networks, including error control, error resilience, network coding, and multiple description coding
Quality of Experience and/or Quality of Service at the mobile peer
Economic, social, legal … issues of P2P streaming
Social networks and mobile P2P networks
Modeling of routing in mobile structured networks
Fault tolerance and load balancing in mobile P2P networks
Broadcast and multicast in P2P mobile networks
Traffic measurement studies of P2P networks extended to mobile systems
Cross-layer design of P2P overlays for mobile systems
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before December 22, 2010, ideally a 2-3 page chapter proposal clearly explaining the mission and concerns of his or her proposed chapter. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by January 5, 2011 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by May 5, 2011. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on a double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this project.
