Abstract

Traditional communication models have been one-to-one or unicast, and one-to-all or broadcast. Among these two extremes lies multicast which refers to the targeting of a data stream to a selected set of receivers. This model is used to characterize the communication patterns in a wide spectrum of applications such as replicated databases, command and control systems, distributed games, audio/video conferencing, and distributed interactive simulation. The following is a list of some applications that make use of multicast communication.
