Enabling P2P Gaming with Network Coding


The popularity of online multiplayer games is ever-growing. Traditionally, networked games have relied on the client-server model for information sharing among players, putting a tremendous burden on the server and creates a single point of failure. Recently, there have been efforts to employ the peer-to-peer paradigm for gaming purposes, however, latency-sensitive action games still pose a formidable challenge. The main contribution of this paper is the design of a novel peer-to-peer gaming framework based on random linear network coding. We briefly evaluate the performance of the proposed framework; our initial results suggest a significant reduction in network latency that comes at the expense of a small data traffic overhead. Although further evaluation is clearly needed, we believe that our approach can be the foundation of a truly peer-to-peer communication architecture for networked games.
