Flexible multi-media streaming such as advertisment insertion, location based services, mobility and wireless access are vital components that make existing Internet Radio and TV networks more attractive for the roaming users. All of these applications also provide added value to telematics, and military usage including coordination, education, situation awareness, distributed simulation, battlefield communication and multi-player games. While content distribution over a wired network can be

This paper discusses some novel application layer techniques that provide a platform for Mobile E-Commerce with a multi-tiered payment and security scheme that supports a business model for a global streaming network. The proposed streaming network called MarconiNet is based on standard IETF protocols such as SIP, SAP and SDP for signaling, RTSP for stream control and RTP/RTCP for media delivery and feedback control.
