Compétences à acquérir

Distribution of services, and particularly digital video, is undergoing dramatic transformation at present. Many developments in this area are changing the way contents are generated, distributed and consumed. These evolutions clearly stimulated the development of new technologies to tackled the main intrinsic flaws of the Internet, which allows opening new business opportunities with the rise of major Internet actors (in particular Content Delivery Network - CDN - providers).

This course studies the exiting technologies for an optimized services' delivery as well as the related challenges formulated in the following questions: How is serivces' delivery currently performed in modern networks? How to improve the services delivery (at both applications and networking levels)? What is the impact of such developments in the services' delivery ecosystem? How can we deal with real-time services? How can we optimize the resources utilization and the end-user quality? How to improve the scalabity of the services' delivery infrastructure?

The research community has devised different approaches to answer the aforementioned questions. In this course, we review the major approaches and analyze their strengths and weaknesses.
