The team developed a live video delivery system that utilizes the upload capacity of clients in a peer-to-peer (p2p) system. While p2p systems have become popular for on-demand content delivery in recent years, no successful live streaming system has ever been deployed commercially. The team developed a novel system, and will fully test its behavior in a simulated network.
