Protocol independent multicast group aggregation scheme for the global area multicast

  title={Protocol independent multicast group aggregation scheme for the global area multicast},
  author={Sejun Song and Zhi-Li Zhang and Baek-Young Choi and David Hung-Chang Du},
-IP Multicast is an important enabling service for the current and future Internet. With the explosive growth of the Internet, a challenging issue -facing IP multicast is scalability, in particular, the problem of multicast forwarding state and control explosion. In this paper, we propose a new methodology to address the multicast scalability probtem for backbone domains --Multicast Tunneling with Branch Filtering (MTBF). This multicast group aggregation scheme is designed on top of the inter… CONTINUE READING
