The UPnP technology is widely employed to enable networked devices interconnected in home computing environments. The UPnP eventing protocol on top of HTTP over TCP performs in a unicast manner, however, suffering from scalability problem and performance degradation against highly frequent event notifications. This paper devises an efficient event multicast mechanism to mitigate above circumstances. The proposed mechanism can group service subscribers of the same access interest and… CONTINUE READING
