1. APAN-KR overlay multicast working group • Motivation • We had difficulty to watch multicast video sessions and experiment multicast research. • Zooin.net want to test their products. • Started at October, 2002. 1.1 Overview
1.2 Goals • To experiment current overlay multicast technology and find practical/research issues. • To build in overlay multicast testbed for multicast research experiments and services. • To explore applications which can be serviced on overlay multicast testbed and do experimental service.
1.3 Member • 5 Universities and 1 Company • KAIST • Chungnam National University • Chonnam National University • K-JIST • Korea University • Zooin.net • More institutes will participate.
2. Activities 2.1 Overlay Multicast Testbed • Deployed overlay multicast testbed using Zooin.net Castbox™ . • Castbox Manager: KAIST (, K-JIST) • Castbox Relay: KAIST, CNU, CHNU, K-JIST, Zooin.net • Castbox Agent: any nodes which are connecting to the testbed. • Will expand it to all participants. • Monitored by MRTG.

2.2 Digital Video Service • Digital Video is a good application on the testbed. • Cooperate with APAN-KR digital video working group. • WMT (Windows Media Technology) was used. • 5 WMT encoders and 1 WMT stream server were set up. • 2 live streams are available. • 640X480 , 30fps, 1.5Mbps • As a source, popular channel (movie and sports) are used. • 3 streams will be available soon.News, university lectures and conference netcast are considered as a candidate.

3. Digital Video Service Events • Test for massive number of users. • 2002.11 Korea vs. Brazil A-Match football game broadcast. • 2002.12 Korean Presidential Election broadcast. ( TV debate , Counting of votes broadcast) • 2003.4 Neulhui Korean folk dance team performance broadcast.
Korea vs. Brazil A-Match football game broadcast • 2 Streams • 640 x 480, 30fps, 1.5Mbps • 320 x 240, 30fps, 768Kbps • Announce to KAIST sports news group and APAN-KR mailing lists.
Korea vs. Brazil A-Match football game broadcast • Totally 579 users • Maximum: 198 users
Korea vs. Brazil A-Match football game broadcast : Traffic Measurement • Traffic at Gateway. • Max. 60Mbps
4. Next Phase • Testbed • Make stable. • Need to upgrade WMT version 9. • Support multicast research experiment. • Currently castbox do not support APIs to apply to other applications. • Make more sites to be participate. • Expand to APAN. • Digital video service • Test other video format (MPEG1/2, DVTS, … ). • Support APAN-KR (or APAN) related workshop netcast.
