Abstract

We propose a hybrid architecture MTreeTV to support fast channel switching. MTreeTV combines the use of P2P networks with dedicated streaming servers, and was proposed to build on the advantages of both P2P and CDN paradigms. We study the placement of the servers with constraints on the client to server paths and evaluate the effect of the server parameters. Through analysis and simulation, we show that MTreeTV supports fast channel switching (<4s).
