WEBRTC On Multi-Party Communication To Lower Video Streaming Traffic
Most mediastream servers use peer to peer (P2P) network infrastructure to resolve heavy load problem such as in
WebRTC. WebRTC is characterized by a flexible signaling protocol method. To implement multi-party communication on
this platform is relatively complex and difficult. In WebRTC, multi-party communication requires more bandwidth which
increases by new peers. In this paper, we proposed a new WebRTC flow control mechanism, called the adaptive peer traffic
control WebRTC (APTC WebRTC) for multi-party communications. Experimental results showed that APTC WebRTC can
reduced the traffic for each peer in the multi-party communication to reduce local peer bandwidth hogging. At the same time,
there is no video traffic consumption at the server-side of APTC WebRTC. This reduces the need for a large number of servers
and costs are also recused.
