Abstract— Appropriate QoS adjustments are required to provide efficient real-time multimedia streaming over the Internet. Usage of real-time streaming tools like IP-TV, Internet TV is on the raise with due support from NGNs like 4G, IMS, VoIP, etc. Enhancing real-time streaming is discussed in recent literatures with regards to various types of networks and with various traffic shaping techniques. This paper proposes traffic management based on client’s geographical location awareness. Location proximity on the Internet provided by Autonomous System (AS) is used with proxy based multicast support to reduce the inter-ISP and redundant traffic which has direct impact on the cost. Decisions made of the overlay are brought forth to the Network layer to adjust the routing information. Suitable architecture for traffic enhancement is discussed along with analytical study.
