Title: Network-layer Fairness for Adaptive Video Streaming (Marwan Fayed)
Title: Network-layer Fairness for Adaptive Video Streams

Presenter: Dr. Marwan Fayed

Abstract:
Netflix, iPlayer, YouTube, and the like, are now the dominant sources of  
traffic on the Internet. Recent studies observe that competing adaptive  
video streaming applications generate flows that lead to instability,  
under-utilization, and unfairness in bottleneck link sharing within the  
network. Additional measurements suggest there may also be a negative  
impact on users' perceived quality of service as a consequence. While it  
may be intuitive to resolve application-generated issues at the application  
layer, in this presentation I shall demonstrate the merits of a network  
layer solution. I will present a new network-layer metric that reflects  
user experience. A performance evaluation using our open-source  
implementation in the home environment reveals that the network-layer may  
just be the right place to attack the general problem.

Bio:
Dr. Marwan Fayed is a lecturer (assistant professor) in the Department of  
Computer Science at the University of Stirling, Scotland, where he is a

network measurement, networks for developing or adversarial regions, and  
peer-to-peer structures and dynamics. He is also an alumnus of BU computer  
science.
