Paper Abstract

This paper bases on the file caching mechanism proposed in our previous work called the generalized relay mechanism, to explore the relationship between the system rejection rates and VOD server design cost. According to traditional VOD design methodology, the amount of system bandwidth required depends on the number of clients that the VOD system wants to support. However, it is hard to practice that all the system clients will request the VOD services at the same time. The design of system bandwidth just accounted for the number of system clients is not cost effective. If a certain rejection rate is allowed in the system, the VOD server design cost will be down in a certain level. Our simulation shows the results for a VOD system server designer to tradeoff the system cost and system rejection rate.
