Title
Towards intelligent scheduling of multimedia content in future access networks
Author
Abstract
The popularity of streaming multimedia services has greatly increased in recent years. Telco- and cable-providers have started offering a plethora of multimedia services in the access and aggregation network, including video on demand, interactive digital television, and time-shifted TV. However, these services introduce additional challenges, such as stringent time constraints, and high bandwidth requirements. To overcome these problems, we explore the advantages of delivering such multimedia content using deadline-aware scheduling and caching algorithms. These algorithms decide when to send and store which content. This enables the network to optimize bandwidth consumption and satisfy deadline constraints. The designed algorithm was evaluated and compared to classical deadline-unaware delivery protocols. This allows us to study the efficiency of the new algorithm, and identify the scenarios in which deadline-aware scheduling improves delivery of multimedia content.
