Multicast communication in "ad hoc" networks

VTC '98. 48th IEEE Vehicular Technology Conference. Pathway to Global Wireless Revolution (Cat. No.98CH36151), 1998

This paper presents a simulation comparison of two unicast "ad-hoc" network routing protocols and proposes a multicast protocol extension, which is based on dynamic source routing (DSR). Our new multicast approach works sender oriented and spans a delivery tree by reusing inherent route information from DSR. Simulation results show that this protocol is efficient and outclasses in various performance measurements ...

  • A multicast switching network for B-ISDN

    To support broadband integrated services digital networks (B-ISDN), switching networks must have the ability to provide both multipoint connections (multicasting) and point-to-point connections (unicasting). This paper proposes a multicast switching network based on a recently proposed routing network which consists of two banyan networks with links at every stage to allow cell transfer to and from each banyan plane, thereby offering multiple paths between each input-output pair. The proposed multicast network employs the copy and routing networks in a parallel configuration. This approach allows for unicast cells to proceed to the routing network without additional delay and keeps the copy network free of unicast traffic which results in a larger amount of the multicast requests to be successfully replicated. Using simulations, the proposed multicast network was shown to offer better performance than other networks in terms of cell loss rates.<<ETX>>

  • An efficient genetic algorithm for anycast routing in delay/disruption tolerant networks

    Delay/Disruption tolerant networks (DTNs) have the capacity to interconnect devices and areas that are underserved by traditional networks. Anycast routing can be used for many applications in DTNs, and is useful when nodes wish to send messages to at least one, and preferably only one, of the members in a destination group. In this letter, an anycast routing algorithm for DTNs based on genetic algorithms (GAs) is presented. The GA is applied to find the appropriate path combination to comply with the delivery needs of a group of anycast sessions simultaneously. The proposed GA-based solution uses the concept of subpopulation to produce the next generation population, a limited number of solutions to be evaluated, and yields minimum delay to achieve a specified rate of delivery. Via simulations we show that this scheme can produce good results.

  • IP Multicast Content Delivery System for Large-Scale Applications

    Various multicast applications and transmission control protocols have a common requirement of content-based transmission. The Internet applications manage a large and widely-dispersed set of users, have multiple data streams that vary in content and media type, and make use of multiple unicast and multicast streams in a single session. The current IP multicast service and architecture do not efficiently support large-scale applications and related transmission control protocols. We propose a framework to model the characteristics of large-scale applications and protocols and their network support. We examine two currently available techniques to scope delivery of content to interested receivers in IP multicast: filtering, where data is filtered by middleware before passed to the application, and addressing, where data is routed only to those receivers that express their interest. We use this framework to evaluate the performance of these applications and related protocols when the network is capable of filtering or addressing

  • Approximating blocking probabilities for multiservice network link with unicast and multicast connections

    In this paper we consider a multiservice network link accepting both multicast and unicast connections. We model the link as a multi-stream loss system and study an approximate method for computing blocking probabilities for traffic streams. A case study is represented to show the accuracy of the approximation.

  • Efficient Reliable Transmission for Mixed Multicast and Unicast Flows

    Since wireless links suffer from channel fading and interferences, reliable transmission is a challenging issue in wireless networks. Recently, it has been proven that network coding can greatly improve transmission efficiency, reliability and robustness of wireless networks in comparison with the conventional automatic repeat request (ARQ) schemes. However, existing network coding-based schemes for mixed multicast and unicast transmissions consider retransmission procedure as two independent parts, multicast part and unicast part. In this paper, we explore to use network coding for mixed multicast and unicast transmissions. We design a network coding based retransmission scheme that can combine the lost packets from both multicast and unicast flows so as to increase coding opportunity and thus improve network resource utilization. Experimental results show that our proposed approach outperforms the conventional methods in terms of the total number of retransmissions and thus improve bandwidth efficiency.
