Reliable multicast transport services for content delivery in heterogeneous mobile environment

  • For efficient deployment of new reliable multicast applications in heterogeneous mobile Internet environments, appropriate retransmission strategies are proposed. The focus is the minimization of the protocol overhead for reliable transport taking into account behaviour in mobile networks (oss and handover behaviour) and application requirements (such as carousel file transfer, one-to-many download and media streaming combined with recording). The proposed techniques are designed as building blocks for localized multicast error control supported by access routers. Considering IETF RMT standardization work, the discussed retransmission approaches can be used for flexible configuration of tree-based reliable multicast protocols in converged wired and wireless Internet environment. The implementation developed for the European project DAIDALOS [1] is based on Linux IPv6 environment. Simulations in ns2 focusing on the benefits of the proposed multicast retransmission schemes for particular application scenarios are presented.
