Concepts, Algorithms, and Protocols
 Husnain Ahmad Muhammad Yasir
Concepts, Algorithms, and Protocols
This is a report on Multicasting technique. In the first section we describe the general conceptssurrounding the theory of Multicasting. Then it describes the multicast protocols such as DVMRP,MOSPF, and PIM as well as the algorithms used in these protocols such as RPM and CBT. IGMP isalso surveyed in this report. The Multicast Backbone (MBone), a real-world multicast network, isalso explored. After that an innovative and evolving approach of putting the whole burden of multicasting toil on the application layer instead of network layer is also added to this report. Finally,a complete list of references is provided.
