Abstract: In this paper, we investigate the cross-layer optimization of caching and fast video delivery for enhanced video streaming quality of experience in two-hop relaying networks, where a base station supplies video data to multiple users with the help of relays. Different from conventional systems, each half-duplex relay node is equipped with a cache and a buffer to facilitate joint scheduling of video fetching and delivery. This introduces channel diversity gains and facilitates fast video delivery. In particular, we investigate two-stage caching and delivery control schemes for the minimization of the overall video delivery time. An offline caching and delivery optimization problem, which assumes full knowledge of user requests and channel state information (CSI), is formulated but turns out to be functional and nonconvex. However, we unveil a hidden quasi-convexity and convexity in the two layers of the decomposed problem and, hence, solve the offline problem optimally and efficiently. Moreover, online video delivery control exploiting statistical CSI is investigated under a stochastic dynamic programming (DP) framework. To mitigate the high computational complexity of DP, we further propose a low-complexity online video delivery algorithm, which achieves close-to-optimal performance in the high buffer capacity regime. Simulation results show that our offline and online schemes can significantly reduce the overall video delivery time due to the degrees of freedom enabled by caching and buffering. Besides, an interesting tradeoff between caching and buffering gains in exploiting the diversity of the wireless channel is revealed.
