CAMPO, Wilmar Y; ARCINIEGAS, Jose L; GARCIA, Roberto y MELENDI, David. Traffic analysis for video on demand services over HFC networks using RTMP protocol. Inf. tecnol. [online]. 2010, vol.21, n.6, pp. 37-48. ISSN 0718-0764. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0718-07642010000600006.
In this paper, the analysis, statistical characterization and modeling of a video on demand (VoD) service running on a cable network HFC (Hybrid Fiber Coaxial) is presented. Audio and video services produce a high consumption of resources on the network infrastructure. Thus, it is necessary to perform detailed studies that allow evaluating the impact of implementing these services and their effect on other services running on the same network. The audio and video service uses the RTMP protocol for multimedia traffic transmission between clients and serven With the objective of evaluating the service performance on cable network, several scenarios with different configurations of the media access control protocol in HFC networks have been analyzed.
