|Abstract:||In recent years we have observed an increased use of the Internet as a means for transmitting large content. There have been several technology attempts to attack this problem, including costly distribution networks and, more recently, peer to peer (P2P) protocols. Amongst these P2P protocols, BitTorrent has proven itself as an effective means for transmitting large content items and today enjoys great popularity. Numerous researchers have analyzed BitTorrent and proposed concepts and models to enhance its reliability, efficiency and fairness. Further, there are proposals to extend BitTorrent to support on-demand multimedia streaming. In this Dissertation we present Bitocast, a content distribution system that combines IP Multicast and BitTorrent protocols in order to achieve a more efficient usage of an Internet Service Provider’s network and reduce download time when serving large sets of contents to large audiences.|
