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. ...doi:10.1109/icnp.2009.5339686 dblp:conf/icnp/ChandraKMNPRR09 fatcat:vaidz63jjzhorphth7fxzba6ia
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. ...doi:10.25904/1912/452 fatcat:rnrzimemzbggxjuwxyosqxqeaa
