Hopcount in the NICE Application Layer Multicast Protocol

Abstract

Application layer (AL) multicast protocols emerged, and in large number, as a response to the slow deployment of IP multicast. However, the gain of different AL multicast mechanisms, in terms of resources consumption over uni-cast, is questionable. In this paper, we investigate the efficiency of AL multicast protocol NICE, in terms of the number of hops a… (More)
