Abstract

A problem that we are experiencing in communication networks is the ability to efficiently multicast information to a group of network sites. Multicasting is defined as point to multipoint communications. Within a network, for example, we may want to send a message from one network site to five other network sites. This is an example of a multicasting operation; We are seeing an increased use of applications which blend not only data, but also voice, and video. Due to this increase in usage, we are experiencing a need to conserve network bandwidth and to avoid loading communication networks excessively. To do this, a method must be used to transport the necessary information to its destination sites in an efficient manner; This is where our research comes in. By incorporating multicasting techniques within message transmissions in networks, we can drastically reduce the necessary bandwidth and resource overhead associated with moving messages throughout the network.
