The Impact of Multicast Layering on Network Fairness

  title={The Impact of Multicast Layering on Network Fairness},
  author={Dan Rubenstein and James F. Kurose and Donald F. Towsley},
Many definitions of fairness for multicast networks assume that sessions are single-rate, requiring that each multicast session transmits data to all of its receivers at the same rate. These definitions do not account for multi-rate approaches, such as layering, that permit receiving rates within a session to be chosen independently. We identify four desirable fairness properties for multicast networks, derived from properties that hold within the max-min fair allocations of unicast networks… CONTINUE READING
