Streaming media over the Internet: Flow based analysis in live access networks

Aurelius, Andreas; Lagerstedt, Christina and Kihl, Maria LU (2011) IEEE International Symposium on Broadband Multimedia Systems and Broadcasting, 2011
Abstract
Multimedia service delivery over the Internet is a

success. The number of services available and the number of

people accessing them is huge. In this paper, we investigate

multimedia streaming services over the Internet. Our analysis is

based on traffic measurement in live access fiber-to-the-home

networks. We study parameters like traffic volume and flow

characteristics for selected services. Especially the Swedish P2P

video service Voddler and the Swedish P2P music service Spotify

are studied. We show that indeed these services are widely used

(20% of local hosts using Voddler, 65 % of local hosts using

Spotify). We also show that they are different... (More)

characteristics, with many short flows for Voddler and longer

flows for Spotify. One thing that they have in common in our

measurements is that the outbound, or uplink, traffic volume is

larger than the inbound. (Less)
