Multicast Switching Networks
In the previous chapters, we examined the principle switching architecture for peer-to-peer communications. We discussed how to build efficient switching networks employing intelligent control algorithms. In this chapter, we consider switching networks that can handle communication from single source to multiple destination, such as teleconferencing, commercial video distribution and distributed data processing.
