在北美盜版 IPTV 產生的流量比 BitTorrent 還多

算是前陣子的新聞,在北美地區的盜版 IPTV 流量比 BitTorrent 的流量還多:「IPTV Piracy Generates More Internet Traffic Than Torrents」。

During peak hours, 6.5% of all downstream traffic on fixed networks is generated by TV piracy services.

To put this into perspective; this is more than all BitTorrent traffic during the peak hours, which was “only” 1.73% last year, and dropping.

如果把影音網站都考慮進去,最大的還是 YouTubeNetflix 這兩個啦,不過盜版的量也不小...

然後也有把最大的量分析出來,這裡面最大的量是 Indian Star Plus HD,應該是印度裔或是印度籍的人看家鄉的東西?

The most viewed of all in North America, with 4.6% of all pirated TV traffic, is the Indian Star Plus HD.

不過 Sandvine 一直都有方法分析整個北美流量,讓人感覺不太舒服...

印度 ISP 跟 Torrent 站台合作加速下載

在「Indian ISPs Speed Up BitTorrent by ‘Peering’ With a Torrent Site」這篇講到印度的 ISP 跟 torrent 站台 TorBox 合作,加速下載的速度。

裡面提到了蠻有趣的加速技巧:

They help users to download content faster by linking them to local peers in their own network.

不知道是不是指 Local Peer Discovery (BEP-14) 的技術,如果是的話大概可以猜出作法... 這樣可以降低不少 ISP 對外頻寬的流量與成本。
