which p2p system can do this..
Posted on 2004-10-11
does anyone know if any p2p protocol/system can do the following:
1) assuming say 100 dialup users, each on apx 28.8k/modems
2) assuming say 5 users on broadband apx. 512k
the 100 users each have the same copy of a movie sat star wars, encoded at 500 kilobits.
is there a way that each dialup users sends a portion of the stream to one of the broadband
users, so that the accumulated bandwidth of the dialup users is enough, that the
broadband user can watch the movie in real-time ?
assuming each dialup users provides 1kb/sec x 100 = 100kb/s
