An announcement-based caching approach for video-on-demand streaming

Author

Abstract
The growing popularity of over the top ( OTT) video streaming services has led to a strong increase in bandwidth capacity requirements in the network. By deploying intermediary caches, closer to the end-users, popular content can be served faster and without increasing backbone traffic. Designing an appropriate replacement strategy for such caching networks is of utmost importance to achieve high caching efficiency and reduce the network load. Typically, a video stream is temporally segmented into smaller chunks that can be accessed and decoded independently. This temporal segmentation leads to a strong relationship between consecutive segments of the same video. Therefore, caching strategies have been developed, taking into account the temporal structure of the video. In this paper, we propose a novel caching strategy that takes advantage of clients announcing which videos will be watched in the near future, e.g., based on predicted requests for subsequent episodes of the same TV show. Based on a Video-on-Demand (VoD) production request trace, the presented algorithm is evaluated for a wide range of user behavior and request announcement models. In a realistic scenario, a performance increase of 11% can be achieved in terms of hit ratio, compared to the state-of-the-art.
