Abstract

Multimedia service delivery over the Internet is a
success. The number of services available and the number of
people accessing them is huge. In this paper, we investigate
multimedia streaming services over the Internet. Our analysis is
based on traffic measurement in live access fiber-to-the-home
networks. We study parameters like traffic volume and flow
characteristics for selected services. Especially the Swedish P2P
video service Voddler and the Swedish P2P music service Spotify
are studied. We show that indeed these services are widely used
(20% of local hosts using Voddler, 65 % of local hosts using
Spotify). We also show that they are different concerning the flow
characteristics, with many short flows for Voddler and longer
flows for Spotify. One thing that they have in common in our
measurements is that the outbound, or uplink, traffic volume is
larger than the inbound.
