Commercial feasibility demands that a large number of users should be accomodated in a VoD (Video-on-Demand) service with a certain level of QOS (quality of service) given a fixed bandwidth communication channel. Two novel methods to minimize the number of logical channels that are required to support as many users as possible are proposed. They are quasi-optimized batching-by-timeout and quasi-optimized batching-by-timeout with adaptive piggybacking. The effectiveness of the proposed channel allocation strategy is demonstrated by simulation.
