In science:

We focus on the contention phase, which consists of L sub-frames (contention slots), and these sub-frames constitute a single virtual frame.

Such p2p based systems not only reduce the load on the content servers, but as has been pointed out by some recent work, they can also reduce load on the network (and enhance end-user performance) by exploiting the geographical locality of content (and careful peer selection).
Bulk content delivery using co-operating end-nodes with upload/download limits
Video content is typically held in the end-user cache for an extended period of time (for later/multiple viewings or simply as part of the users library of content).
Bulk content delivery using co-operating end-nodes with upload/download limits
For these reasons, a carefully managed system (with appropriate incentives for end-users) through which locally cached content can be used as a content source for other users seems entirely feasible and appropriate - in terms of potential gains.
Bulk content delivery using co-operating end-nodes with upload/download limits
Otherwise, the request will be forwarded to the content server which will figure out the cache that retains a copy of the content and the download will resume in a p2p fashion.
Bulk content delivery using co-operating end-nodes with upload/download limits
Finally, such limits and rate plans will be the norm for the increasing popular mobile broadband connections. • In practical deployments, the content server has a high data rate connection that is bought in bulk from the service provider and hence has typically a lesser penalty than the content caches.
Bulk content delivery using co-operating end-nodes with upload/download limits
Then, based on these predictions in each epoch, it i) places the items at each cache and ii) redirects subsequent user requests to suitable content caches, or to the content server.
Bulk content delivery using co-operating end-nodes with upload/download limits
Each node Ci (i > 0) represents a content cache. C0 represents the content server For cache Ci, let ui and di specify the limit on data that can be uploaded/downloaded at the cache free-of-cost 5 .
Bulk content delivery using co-operating end-nodes with upload/download limits
At any moment of time, let ˆdi and ˆui denote the amount of content that has been downloaded and uploaded respectively by cache Ci, since the beginning of an epoch. A new request for content ok at Ci will incur zero cost if served locally.
