Un Eco-système de Médias Réseaux basé sur la Conscience du Contexte, du Réseau et du Contenu à destination de l'Internet Media du Futur

Abstract : Today's trend and absolut necessity is to build the Future Internet. Many research actions are headed towards this and most of them outline the Media domain as one of the most predominant and essential to be considered. Indeed, Media content is already dominating the Internet traffic and is continuously increasing whereas the current architecture had not been built with Media in mind. Efficient delivery of Media content becomes now a key evolution not only for pleasing End-Users but also (and consequently) for revealing new business opportunities to all the actors in the value chain. In this thesis, we propose a new architecture for Future Media Internet, centred around the concept of a win-win collaborative approach between all the stakeholders. The "Networked Media Ecosystem" we aim to construct will enable new features and benefits for all stakeholders, essentially thanks to the innovative *-Awareness features it enables and their outcomes in terms of quality enhancement and adaptation. The proposed approach relies on: (1) a virtual Home-Box layer, which empowers Context- and Network-Awareness at the application level, linked with an efficient content delivery system, and provides related information for permitting to achieve Content-Awareness at the network level; (2) a virtual Content-Aware Network (CAN) layer, which role is to consider the information related to the transported content and take proper actions related to it, in addition to providing network-related information to the upper layers. The proposed architecture has not only been designed and simulated but also conceived, implemented and validated through the European Project named ALICANTE. It provides interesting results and has paved the way towards future evolutions and research directions in the field of Networked Media.
