We demonstrate the effectiveness of DirCast using extensive experiments in a Wi-Fi prototype implementation and through large-scale simulations.  ...  However, multicast over Wi-Fi suffers from several well-known problems such as low data rate, high losses and unfairness vis-a-vis other contending unicast transmissions.  ...  In this paper, we present DirCast, a practical and efficient system for improving multicast performance over corporate Wi-Fi networks. DirCast does not require any changes to the 802.11 standard.  ...

Reliable and Efficient Multicast Communication in WiFi Direct (P2P) 802.11Wireless Networks

Gul Zameen Khan, University, My, Ruben Gonzalez
As a result, a multicast protocol cannot achieve reliability and efficiency without taking into account the specifications of the MAC and PHY layers of WD 802.11 networks.  ...  This thesis focuses on exploring a multicast communication protocol forWiFi Direct (WD) 802.11 networks. The aim is to improve reliability and efficiency of multicast communication in WD networks.  ...  A tremendous amount of literature has already investigated the multicast MAC for standard Wi-Fi wireless networks.  ...
