In recent years we have observed an increased use of the Internet as a means for transmitting
large content. There have been several technology attempts to attack this problem, including
costly distribution networks and, more recently, peer to peer (P2P) protocols. Amongst
these P2P protocols, BitTorrent has proven itself as an effective means for transmitting large
content items and today enjoys great popularity.
Numerous researchers have analyzed BitTorrent and proposed concepts and models to enhance
its reliability, efficiency and fairness. Further, there are proposals to extend BitTorrent
to support on-demand multimedia streaming. In this Dissertation we present Bitocast, a
content distribution system that combines IP Multicast and BitTorrent protocols in order to
achieve a more efficient usage of an Internet Service Provider’s network and reduce download
time when serving large sets of contents to large audiences.
