Support for efficient multicasting in WLANs can enable new services such as streaming of TV channels, radio channels, and visitor’s information. With increasing deployments of large-scale WLANs, such services can be made available to a large number of users. However, any new multicast based services must minimally impact the existing unicast services which are currently the core services offered by most WLANs. In this paper we leverage the flexibility of associating with different access-points… CONTINUE READING
