Paper Abstract

With more service providers making considerable investments to roll out multimedia services using IP technology, multimedia distribution, especially broadcast TV distribution over an IP network, the so called IPTV, is expected to grow impressively over coming years. However, there are confusing concepts and claims for this new technology: What is IPTV? Why do we need IPTV? How does it work? What are the requirements to design an efficient IPTV network? Are there any research problems? What are the solutions? In this paper, we will try to provide initial answers to all those questions based on our understanding and research work.
