Advances in Queueing Theory and Network Applications
We propose an analytical model based on renewal reward theory to investigate the dynamics of on-demand streaming service. At the same time, we also propose a simple method combining multicasts and unicasts that can reduce the download rate from the streaming server without causing delay. By modeling the requests as a Poisson arrival and using renewal reward theory, we study the dynamics of this streaming service and derive the optimal combination of unicast and multicast. We even show how todoi:10.1007/978-0-387-09703-9_2 fatcat:sptt6tla7rfnjbklon3c6sz7gi
