— We present a novel congestion control algorithm suitable for use with cumulative, layered data streams in the MBone. Our algorithm behaves similarly to TCP congestion control algorithms, and shares band-width fairly with other instances of the protocol and with TCP flows. It is entirely receiver driven and requires no per-receiver status at the sender, in(More)
In this paper we present a Reliable Multicast data Distribution Protocols (RMDP), and discuss its performance. The protocol is based on the use of FEC techniques to drastically reduce the impact of independent losses for different receivers, which make ARQ-based protocols perform very poorly as the number of receivers grows. The protocol is well-suited to(More)
