Résumé / Abstract :
In this course, we will study the delivery of multimedia contents, particularly video, in current telecommunication networks. First, we explain what a Content Distribution Network (CDN) is and how it works. Secondly, we focus on video streaming, that is, in the delivery of the dominant content in the CDNs: the video. Finally, we explain some approaches to optimise the distribution of video content over wireless networks.
