Design and Performance of a Scalable Real Time Control Protocol: Simulations and Evaluations

Scalability problems which arise when the Real Time Control Protocol (RTCP) is used in large multicast groups include: increased feedback delay, increased storage state at every member; and ineffective RTCP bandwidth usage. This paper presents a Scalable RTCP (S-RTCP). S-RTCP is based on a hierarchical structure in which members are grouped into local… CONTINUE READING
