An On-Demand Shared Tree with Hybrid State for Multicast Routing in Ad Hoc Mobile Wireless Networks

Abstract

This paper describes the Multicast Shared Tree Protocol (MSTP) that has been designed to support the delivery of multicast packets in a mobile ad hoc network. MSTP uses a shared tree as its basic multicast infrastructure and, to maintain the tree against topology changes and network failures, it adopts the so called hybrid-state reliability mechanism, which… (More)
