This paper proposes a multicast mechanism for the universal mobile telecommunication system (UMTS). Our scheme relies on establishing multicast tunnels throughout the network that allow multicast packets to be transferred in an optimal manner on shared links toward multiple destinations. We describe the mechanisms of the scheme in establishing and maintaining the multicast tunnels, managing multicast groups, executing location updates, and performing multicast packet forwarding. As a result of… CONTINUE READING
