A broadcast packet is for delivery to all nodes of a network. Algorithms for accomplishing this delivery through a store-and-forward packet switching computer network include (1) transmission of separately addressed packets, (2) multidestination addressing, (3) hot potato forwarding, (4) spanning tree forwarding, and (5) source based forwarding. To this list of algorithms we add (6) reverse path forwarding, a broadcast routing method which exploits routing procedures and data structures already…

In this paper, the source based forwarding algorithm is considered, with this algorithm, a spanning tree is defined for each node, and broadcast packets are sent along the branches of these trees.

Forwarding in a content-based network

This paper presents an algorithm for content-based forwarding, an essential function in content- based networking, and gives the results of studies evaluating its performance.

A routing scheme for content-based networking

The routing scheme uses a combination of a traditional broadcast protocol and a content-based routing protocol, highlighting a set of optimization heuristics and showing that this routing scheme is effective and scalable.

This work will investigate if is possible to take advantage of the higher performance forwarding plane of a network node to implement flooding and duplicate flooded packet detection and show how flooding can be implemented in the multi-protocol label switching (MPLS) forwarding plane.

Reducing Latency and Overhead of Route Repair with Controlled Flooding

It is shown that the proposed mechanism that allows fast route repair in on demand ad hoc routing protocols reduces the connection disruption probability as well as the frequency of broadcasts and is applied to the Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector routing protocol.

TBRPF uses the topology information received along the broadcast trees to compute the minimum-hop paths that form the trees themselves, and is the first topology broadcast protocol based on RPF with this property.

Routing and Traffic Management

This chapter provides an overview of communication networks and describes the fundamental routing techniques used in today’s networks for unicast, multicast and broadcast communication and shows how traffic management techniques can help in improving the performance of routing and forwarding of network traffic while optimizing the utilization of network resources.

This algorithm is close to reverse path multicast algorithms but the flooding is much more controlled and tailored as to be scalable to enable its use in an inter-domain environment.

A Scalable Destination-Oriented MulticastProtocol with Incremental Deployability

The design incorporates the reverse path forwarding (RPF) concept and the BGP routing information, so that DOM can work efficiently in practical networking scenarios especially with asymmetric inter-domain routing.
