Performance Analysis for Overlay Multimedia Multicast on $r$-ary Tree and $m$-D Mesh Topologies

Without requiring multicast support from the underlying networks, overlay multicast has the advantage of implementing inter-domain multimedia multicast communications. Usually, overlay multicast protocols employ two different topologies: r-ary tree and m-D mesh. In this paper, we study the influence of topology selection on multimedia multicast performance… CONTINUE READING
