Fault Tolerance Strategies for Low-Latency Live Video Streaming
by Tafleen, Sana, M.S., University of Louisiana at Lafayette, 2018, 92; 13420002
Abstract (Summary)

This paper describes the effect of failures on various video QoS metrics like delay, packet loss, and recovery time. SDN network has been used to guarantee reliability and efficient data transmission. There are many failures that can occur within the SDN mesh network or between the non-SDN and the SDN network. There is a need for both reliable and low-latency transmission of live video streams, especially in situations such as public safety or public gathering events. This is because everyone is trying to use the limited network at the same time. That leads to oversubscription and network outages, and computing devices may fail. Existing mechanisms built into TCP/IP and video streaming protocols, and fault tolerance strategies (such as buffering), are inadequate due to low latency and reliability requirements for live streaming, especially in the presence of limited bandwidth and computational power of mobile or edge devices. The objective of this paper is to develop an efficient fault tolerant strategy at the source-side to produce a high-quality video with low latency and data loss. To recover the lost data during failures, buffering approach is used to store chunks in a buffer and retransmit the lost frames, requested by the receiver.
