If caching servers at the ISPs form an edge network, then are peer-to-peer networks ... beyond the edge? No matter how much bandwidth costs drop, no matter how much fiber gets laid, people always want more bandwidth, and nothing uses more bandwidth than audio and video media.

Technologies that should have helped A/V - the mbone, caching net appliances - failed to solve the problem at large on the internet. While more and more bandwidth is the perennial brute force solution to streaming media, peer to peer networking is the first elegant solution to arrive in a while.

This session presents an analysis of the many content-delivery solutions being developed with peer-to-peer technologies to create cost effective, scalable media delivery on the Internet.
