Multicasting multimedia streams in IEEE 802.11 networks: a focus on reliability and rate adaptation

Abstract

Multicasting multimedia streams in IEEE 802.11 wireless LANs has two issues: reliability and rate adaptation. We address these issues by proposing two mechanisms that augment the current multicasting standards in a backward-compatible fashion. Semi-reliable multicasting (SRM) selects a leader who sends feedback information to lessen the reliability problem… (More)
