Network Aware Peer-to-peer Application over Wise Networks

Abbreviation: 
NAPA-WINE

The Network Aware Peer-to-peer Application over WIse Network (NAPA-WINE) project, a Specific Targeted Research Project (STREP) funded by the European Commission within the seventh framework programme, aims at:

  1. providing a careful analysis of the impact that a large deployment of both general P2P-TV and P2P-HQTV services may have on the Internet, through an in detailed characterization of the traffic they generate;
  2. providing guidelines for P2P-TV developers regarding the design of systems that minimize the impact on the underlying transport network while optimizing the user perceived quality;
  3. providing a road map for Internet Service Providers to better exploit the network bandwidth by showing simple and minimum cost actions that can be taken in presence of P2P-TV traffic.

The project coordinator is Prof. Emilio Leonardi, and the Technical Coordinator is Prof. Marco Mellia.
