OpenIPTV: a comprehensive SDN-based IPTV service framework

OpenIPTV: a comprehensive SDN-based IPTV service framework IPTV is an emerging TV content delivery service that should guarantee Quality of Service (QoS) to deliver television contents over IP for their customers.

Abstract

IPTV is an emerging TV content delivery service that should guarantee Quality of Service (QoS) to deliver television contents over IP for their customers. However, providing such QoS regarding service level agreements (SLA) requires frequent service monitoring and adaptive configuration mechanisms. Nowadays, Software Defined Networks (SDNs) provide capabilities to deploy and manage networks dynamically and can maintain QoS. In this paper, a novel IPTV service framework (OpenIPTV) is proposed, which utilizes SDN as an underlying technology for providing QoS for IPTV customers in a shared backbone network. OpenIPTV is implemented in a well-known OpenDayLight controller and strictly followed a modular design for the sake of efficiency. OpenIPTV comprises all service requirements such as resource monitoring, channel changing, multicast group managing and dynamic QoS multicast traffic engineering. The performance of OpenIPTV is evaluated under different scenarios and experimental results confirmed the effectiveness of the proposed framework in terms of QoS metrics. Furthermore, experimental results show that OpenIPTV is a feasible and practical solution to deliver IPTV services with high level of QoS over SDN.
