Project Description

Hi,

I need software that can be used to reliably distribute content from one node to other nodes in a group of nodes. The content will be distributed over the Internet.

Please see detailed requirements below.



## Deliverables

Hi,


I need software that can be used to reliably distribute content from one node to other nodes in a group of nodes. The content will be distributed over the Internet.

Each node in the group can produce and consume real-time data at the same time. At any point multiple nodes may produce data and multiple nodes may consume data from a single node. The system must be prepared to deliver data from a single node to a group of nodes without too much bandwidth overhead on the producing node. A mesh can be used to achieve that.


Since the data is real-time long end-to-end delays are undesirable.

The system may be a centralized system or a peer-to-peer network (probably a mesh), though I prefer the latter. If you can deliver both I need a comparison of the two with the advantages and the disadvantages of each.

The system should be implemented on C#/C++/Java and should be able to run on Windows. If centralized system is proposed the central nodes may run on OS other than Windows.

The system must support some form of data encryption and peer/client-server authentication. Insecure channels must be supported as well, though authentication may be required when a channel is opened (similar to HTTP authentication).

Please include the following the following information in your bid

* Overall description of the system: how it's going to work, connections between nodes, etc. Qualities of the system: fault tolerance, estimated end-to-end delay, etc. Advantages and disadvantages (weak spots).


<!-- -->

* What kind of security and authentication you would use


<!-- -->

* How much time it will require to develop the system and when you can deliver it

If you think than an existing product can be used you can bid on that by describing the product and licensing cost.
