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

Presenter: Dr. Marwan Fayed

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.

Dr. Marwan Fayed is a lecturer (assistant professor) in the Department of  
Computer Science at the University of Stirling, Scotland, where he is a  
member of the Communications and Services Research Group. Dr. Fayed's  
previous work includes context-awareness and routing for wireless networks,  
network measurement, networks for developing or adversarial regions, and  
peer-to-peer structures and dynamics. He is also an alumnus of BU computer
