Tavarua is a multimedia streaming system that leverages network-striping to deliver relatively high bit rate video over present-day cellular wireless wide-area networks. The Tavarua system achieves this by building on our previously developed flexible network-striping middleware. This paper describes a motivating mobile telemedicine application, and the design of the Tavarua system. It also describes experiments in which our initial Tavarua implementation was used to stripe video over multiple 3G cellular-phones from different providers.
