Many real-time applications, such as video conferencing, require the transmission of flows from a sender to multiple receivers subject to Quality of Service (QoS) delivery constraints (e.g., bounded delay). Traditional multicast routing algorithms used for solving the Steiner tree problem cannot be used in this scenario, because QoS constraints on links are not considered. Moreover, with QoS metrics consideration, the problem of computing optimal constrained multicast tree is known as NP… CONTINUE READING
