Abstract
Today P2P faces two important challenges: design of mechanisms to encourage users? collaboration in multimedia live streaming services; design of reliable algorithms with QoS provision, to encourage multimedia providers employ the P2P topology in commercial streaming services. We believe that these two challenges are tightly-related and there is much to be done with respect. This paper proposes a novel monetary incentive for P2P multimedia streaming. The incentive model classifies the users in groups according to the perceived video quality. We apply the model to a streaming system?s billing model in order to evaluate its feasibility and visualize its quantitative effect on the users? motivation and the provider?s pr ofit. We conclude that monetary incentive can boost up users? cooperation, loyalty and enhance the overall system integrity and performance. Moreover the model defines the constraints for the provider?s cost and profit when the system is leveraged on the cloud. Considering those constraints, a multimedia content provider can adapt the billing model of his streaming service and achieve desirable discount-profit trade-off. This will moreover contribute to better promotion of the service, across the users on the Internet.
