Scalable Overlay Multicast Architecture
We have introduced loosely-coupled TCP connection in order to support efficient and reliable overlay multicast. We have also defined new service type to the flow label of IPv6 header and proposed the architecture that offers differentiated service. In order to realize this proposal, we used separate buffer of a different kind in accordance with its service type. The architecture we propose supports subnet multicasting in a bid to prevent the degradation that has occurred due to the increased number of total users, and we have optionally adopted FEC (Forward Error Correction) so that the receiver can rectify the error. In order to verify the effect of the proposed solution, we simulated our experiment in an environment that is similar to the actual service environment.
