Abstract

The flexibility of Wireless Mesh Network (WMNarchitecture has made it easier for the delivery of videostreams over such networks. However, delivering video streams over WMNs increases workload on the mesh nodes, increasesbandwidth usage due to dedicated streams and limits scalability. These challenges are overcome by using WMNs withDynamic Stream Merging Capability (DSM) [1]. DSM is acommunication sharing technique that can merge redundant streams at upstream nodes before flowing to downstream nodesin the multicast streaming tree. In spite of these benefits,there is a growing need to use a distributed session handoff scheme to support seamless video streaming for fast moving clients, which not many research works are concentratingon. Thus in this paper, we propose a light weight, fast anddistributed scheme that uses a novel session rate prediction technique and a novel Dynamic Relationship Tree (DRT). The proposed session handoff scheme promotes workload sharingand supports mobile clients moving at speeds as high as 250 miles per hour. Based on extensive simulations performed in NS2 we found that the proposed scheme can provide robust and seamless inter and intra-domain session handoff producing less latency and overhead compared to existing schemes.
