A note on distributed multicast routing in point-to-point networks

Roman Novak, Joz̆e Rugelj, Gorazd Kandus
2001 Computers & Operations Research  
The multicast routing problem is translated into a Steiner tree problem in point-to-point networks where nodes have only a limited knowledge about the network.  ...  The problem of "nding a multicast connection for a static group of communicating entities in connection-oriented point-to-point network can be formulated in graph theory as a minimum Steiner tree problem  ...  One of the key issues to be addressed is that of routing multicast communications. In order to be e$cient, tree-shaped topologies of multicast connections are required.  ...

TMA: Trajectory-based Multi-Anycast forwarding for efficient multicast data delivery in vehicular networks

Jaehoon (Paul) Jeong, Tian He, David H.C. Du
2013 Computer Networks  
To our knowledge, this is the first attempt to investigate the efficient multicast data delivery in vehicle networks, based on the trajectories of vehicles in the multicast group.  ...  Therefore, after receiving a request of multicast data delivery from a source vehicle, the central server has to figure out how the data has to be delivered to the moving vehicles in the multicast group  ...  [12] propose a reliable geographical multicast routing in vehicular ad hoc networks.  ...

Between underlay and overlay

Matthias Wählisch, Thomas C. Schmidt, Thomas C. Schmidt
2007 Internet Research  
We introduce Hybrid Shared Tree, a new architecture and routing approach to combine network-and subnetworklayer multicast services in end-system domains with transparent, structured overlays on the inter-domain  ...  A significantly simplified routing approach gave rise to the lean, source-specific multicast in IP.  ...  Note that this tree-directed overlay forwarding will lead to forward transmissions in the underlay, which resemble loose source routing along a distribution tree.  ...

11. Application-Layer Multicast [chapter]

Kostas Katrinis, Martin May
2005 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Since the early days of the Internet, extending routing capabilities beyond point-to-point communication has been a desired feature, mostly as a means of resource discovery.  ...  Alternatively, one of the newly arisen multicast proposals tries to more closely adhere to the end-to-end argument by shifting the service implementation to higher in the protocol stack, namely to the  ...  Direct IP routing is abstracted to routing in the virtual space and accordingly, overlay multicast is abstracted to one-or many-to-many communication across the nodes in the virtual space.  ...

Router Assisted Overlay Multicast

Konstantinos Katsaros, Nikolaos Bartsotas, George Xylomenos
2009 2009 Next Generation Internet Networks  
Since peer assisted content distribution represents a major fraction of total Internet traffic, a more efficient distribution scheme would be of great interest to users and network operators alike.  ...  While multicasting is considered valuable for content distribution, it is not widely supported on the Internet.  ...  ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS The work reported in this paper was supported by the ICT PSIRP project under contract ICT-2007-216173.  ...

Network for Video Distribution between Preceding and Succeeding Vehicles on the Same Route

Katsuhiko Sato, Michiaki Katsumoto, Tetsuya Miki
2005 IPSJ Digital Courier  
However, FVDS and SMM lack sufficient application-level protocols to manage preceding and following vehicles on the same route, and have a drawback of topological constraints in the access network to accommodate  ...  The Mobile Vehicle Management (MVM) protocol is an application-level protocol that discovers a preceding vehicle on the same route and provides its multicast address to following vehicles by using information  ...  This state signifies that the rendezvous point in the access network (and also the source point in the core network) is receiving multicast data from a multicast source.  ...

Ashraf Matrawy, Chung-Horng Lung, Ioannis Lambadaris, Frank Huebner, Robert D. van der Mei
2004 Performance, Quality of Service, and Control of Next-Generation Communication Networks II  
We propose the use of one (or more) control points in the network called Rendez-vous Points (RP) in a manner similar to PIM-SM shared trees.  ...  Establishing multicast communications in MPLS-capable networks is an essential requirement for a wide-scale deployment of MPLS in the Internet.  ...  MULTICAST COMMUNICATIONS IN MPLS NETWORKS As explained in Section II, the distribution of multicast traffic in IP networks is done using a distribution tree constructed by means of a multicast routing  ...

Application-Level Multicast Using Content-Addressable Networks [chapter]

Sylvia Ratnasamy, Mark Handley, Richard Karp, Scott Shenker
2001 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Our scheme builds on recent work on Content-Addressable Networks (CANs).  ...  In this paper, we propose an application-level multicast scheme capable of scaling to large group sizes without restricting the service model to a single source.  ...  Note that many different paths exist between two points in the space and so, even if one or more of a node's neighbors were to crash, a node would automatically route along the next best available path  ...

2008 2008 IEEE Conference on Virtual Environments, Human-Computer Interfaces and Measurement Systems  
The proposed approach is mainly based on distributed hash tables (DHTs) in order to achieve a decentralized distributed system where any participating node can efficiently retrieve the updates associated  ...  Moreover, efficient multicast is addressed as an inevitable requirement for message exchange in multi-user environments and a solution based on Scribe is proposed.  ...  To disseminate the multicast messages in the group the tree is formed by joining the Pastry routes from each group member to the rendezvous point.  ...

1997 IEEE Journal on Selected Areas in Communications  
This paper surveys protocol functions and mechanisms for data transmission within a group, from multicast routing problems up to end-to-end multipoint transmission control.  ...  Group communication supports information transfer between a set of participants. It is becoming more and more relevant in distributed environments.  ...  Note that broadcasting the message to the token site, passing the token, and sending a NACK are point-to-point reliable operations.  ...

Distributed Core Multicast (DCM): A Multicast Routing Protocol for Many Groups with Few Receivers [chapter]

Ljubica Blazević, Jean-Yves Le Boudec
1999 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Such a case occurs, for example, when multicast addresses are allocated to mobile hosts, as a mechanism to manage Internet host mobility or in large distributed simulations.  ...  We present a multicast routing protocol called Distributed Core Multicast (DCM).  ...  In Figure 8 (a) all four senders to a multicast group send data towards a single point in the network. This increases traffic concentration on the links leading to the RP.  ...

A Framework of Multicast Transmission on MPLS Network Using PIM-SM Protocol

2008 2008 Third International Conference on Convergence and Hybrid Information Technology  
Internet applications transmit data from one sender to many receivers, In Multicast protocols while packet broadcasts to a group of receivers the total numbers of packets swamped in a network decrease.  ...  Multicast communication reduces both the time it takes to send data to a large no of receivers and the amount of network resources.  ...  We propose the use of one (or more) control points in the network called Rendezvous Points (RP) in a manner similar to PIM-SM shared trees.  ...
