dc.description.abstractStreamed multimedia is becoming common on the Internet as the bandwidths increase for end-users. To stream data with high bitrates to many concurrent users, servers are needed that can handle these extreme loads. Implementing servers in clusters to be able to meet demands has proved to be a good strategy, providing scalability and performance. One commercial actor that has done this successfully is nCube. Their n4x solution is a server cluster based on a hypercube interconnection topology, and their reported server performance is promising. However, the use of special hardware for offloading routing increases the cost for deploying this system. Network processing units have many similar properties to the special hardware used by nCube. They are fully programmable and optimized for networking tasks. In this thesis, we start by charting the functionality and capabilities of the IXP2400 network processor by implementing a series of test applications. Using knowledge gained from this exploration, the design and implementation of a video server hypercube prototype is done. We present an evaluation of the IXP2400 hardware platform based on the test applications. Our video server cube prototype is also presented and evaluated.nor
