Paper Abstract

Providing massive media streaming services is a very difficult problem for academic research and also a very constructive proposal for commercial investment. Traditional client/server model with very high cost/profit ratio and big bottlenecks, and novel P2P model with complex management, are all not good. In this paper we propose a semi-autonomous peer-to-peer-like network to provide massive media streaming services and avoid above problems. Our scheme is a tradeoff between server-systems and P2P systems. In this scheme, we make full use of P2P systems advantages, high aggregation network bandwidth and large storage spaces. But to avoid the impacts from peers unbending actions, we divide whole network serving area into many small zones and designate a seeding server for whole network area and a sub-seeding server for each network zone. Simulation results prove the advantages of the new system with good scalability and stable QoS.
