Meet us and the NDN Testbed @ MMSys 2016

We are proud to announce that our Demo Emulating NDN-based Multimedia Delivery has been accepted for presentation at the ACM Multimedia Systems 2016 Conference (MMSys 2016). The event will take place from May 10-13, 2016 in Klagenfurt am Wörthersee, Austria. We are going to present our NDN-based testbed that uses low-cost single board computers, so called Banana Pi Routers. We use the scenario of pull-based adaptive video delivery as a showcase to present the capabilities of the testbed.

We are looking to forward to meet you @ MMSys 2016.

Abstract Today, the global share and increase of Internet traffic is largely caused by multimedia delivery, mainly encompassing video, audio and image sharing on social, news, and entertainment platforms. This fact is well known to the Internet research community, which tries to counteract by increasing the content delivery efficiency. So-called Information-Centric Networks (ICN) are of considerable interest, advertised as enablers for intelligent networks, where effective delivery is to be provided as an inherent network feature. Most research proposals in this area are evaluated in simulated environments, using simulation frameworks such as OMNeT++ or ns-3. However, simulations always have shortcomings and cannot substitute measurements in physical networks. In this demonstration, we show how to readily set up an ICN-based testbed using low-budget single-board computers to conduct comprehensive emulations. We choose the scenario of pull-based adaptive video delivery as a showcase and evaluate the performance of different client-based adaptation mechanisms at the application level and different content forwarding strategies at the network level. All of the presented tools and visualization features are provided as open source contributions to the community. [bibtex] [pdf]
