uring the last two decades, MPEG has developed a number of standards for multimedia delivery. Recognizing the new challenges and shortcomings of existing standards, MPEG initiated the development of new standards for improved multimedia delivery over the Internet. In the next phase of MPEG’s work, the MPEG Media Transport (MMT) is being developed as part 1 of ISO/IEC 23008, High Efficiency Coding and Media Delivery in Heterogeneous Environments (MPEG-H). MMT assumes an IP network with in-network intelligent caches close to the receiving entities, which not only actively cache the contents but also adaptively packetize and push the content to the receiving entities. MMT also assumes a network environment in which the content could be accessed at a finer grain, with uniquely identifiable names instead of just their location and small chunks of the content being cached close to the receiving entity regardless of the specific service provider and their location.
