Experiences from a Field Test using ICN for Live Video Streaming

Information Centric Networking (ICN) aims to evolve the Internet from a host-centric to a data-centric paradigm. In particular, it improves performance and resource efficiency in events with large crowds where many users in a local area want to generate and watch media content related to the event.

In this paper, we present the design of a live video streaming system built on the NetInf ICN architecture and how the architecture was adapted to support live streaming of media content. We also present the results of extensive field tests carried out over several days during a major sports event, to evaluate the feasibility and performance of the system.
