This paper describes the design of a reliable multicast framework which integrates FEC and receiverinitiated retransmit to ensure reliability. A dynamically elected control tree is used to aggregate the NAKs and tackle the NAK implosion problem. Both techniques support flow and congestion control to enable efficient, high data rate multicast data transfer(More)
This paper describes the design of a new rate and congestion controller (RCR) which employs FEC (forward error correction) support. The design follows the design principles of TCP but uses FEC to assure TCP-competitiveness. It is targeted primarily at one to many reliable bulk multicast data transfer. It shares bandwidth with other TCP flows fairly and is(More)
This paper describes the design of a new FEC fueled rate and congestion controller (RCR) which is targeted primarily at one to many reliable bulk multicast data transfer. The concept of RCR is validated by analytical and simulation results. The heuristic analysis is based on a new extended model for flows, which implement a congestion control algorithm(More)
This document describes the framework, messages, and procedures for the Diameter Network address and port translation Control Application. This Diameter application allows per-endpoint control of Network Address Translators and Network Address and Port Translators, which are added to networks to cope with IPv4 address space depletion. This Diameter(More)

One of the main motivations behind Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) is its ability to provide connectivity not only among customer routers and servers/hosts but also among customer IEEE bridges. VPLS is expected to deliver the same level of service that current enterprise users are accustomed to from their own enterprise bridged networks or their Ethernet(More)
