CCNxCon2012: Poster Session: Live Streaming with Content Centric Networking

  1. 1. Live Streaming with Content Centric Networking Hongfeng Xu2,3, Zhen Chen1,3, Rui Chen2,3, Junwei Cao1,3 1 Research Institute of Information Technology 2 Department of Computer Science and Technology 3 Tsinghua National Laboratory for Information Science and Technology Tsinghua University, Beijing 100084, China Email: zhenchen@tsinghua.edu.cn In this poster, we propose a design of CCN live streaming. CCN live streaming splits the video into a sequence of segments,and generates a playlist file, as HTTP live streaming do. The user who wants to play this video streaming can download the smallplaylist file, and play the video by getting the video segments one by one. All the file delivery is using CCN protocol, instead ofHTTP. The last section of this poster contains some experiments that prove CCN live streaming is more efficient than HTTP livestreaming on content distribution. We design an experiment to demonstrate that CCN can reduce the network load as the number of simultaneous watch clientsincreased. All the Android clients are tested in the Tsinghua campus network, and connect to Internet through a CCN router. First,all the clients will play the same video at the same time using both CCN live streaming and HTTP live streaming, then measurethe network bandwidth consumption and video buffer delay respectively. This can show the function of the pending mechanismin CCN when content caching. Secondly, the clients will play the video one by one, this will show the function of the contentstore in CCN when content caching. Figure 1. Android clients retrive video content As show in Figure 2,from the experiment results we can see that, as the number of clients increasing, the network load willget worse and worse if using HTTP live streaming. CCN can make this condition much better because of content caching. Figure 2. The media buffer delay in playing video simutaneously with lots of Omedia clients
