Abstract: Delivering media to large numbers of mobile users presents challenges due to the stringent requirements of streaming media, mobility, wireless, and scaling to support large numbers of users. This paper presents a Mobile Streaming Media Content Delivery Network (MSM- CDN) designed to overcome these challenges. The MSMCDN is a network overlay consisting of overlay servers on top of the existing network; these overlay servers are control points that facilitate end-to-end media delivery and mid-network media services. This paper presents an overview of the MSM-CDN system architecture, and describes the testbed prototype that we built based on these architectural principles. The MSM-CDN provides a new platform for media delivery, and we describe a number of research directions related to the MSM-CDN. Notes: Copyright IEEE.
