Abstract

In hierarchical reliable multicast schemes, the number of repair proxies and their locations influence inter-destination synchronization. The inter-destination synchronization in multicast environments means the adjustment of the output timing among destinations over the Internet. Improving the inter-destination synchronization is beneficial to collaborative applications such as multi-conference system and multi-playing online game. In this paper, we propose a scheme to find the optimal locations of repair proxies that can improve inter-destination synchronization maximally in heterogeneous network environments. The simulation results show that if repair proxies are placed by the proposed scheme, delivery delay fairness of inter-destination can be improved by 0.05 maximally. In addition, we perform t-Test on the simulation results in order to verify that our optimal placement improves synchronization.
