Bandwidth-efficient multicast in heterogeneous wireless networks

Abstract

In this paper, we propose a bandwidth-efficient multicast mechanism for heterogeneous wireless networks. We reduce the bandwidth cost of a shortest-path IP multicast tree by adaptively selecting the cell and the wireless technology for each mobile host to join the multicast group. Our mechanism enables more mobile hosts to cluster together and lead to the… (More)
