Abstract

Multicasting is the transfer of physically same data from one sender to a defined set of receivers. The conventional transport protocols like XTP and VMTP also support multicast, but these protocols have some problems, especially in error recovery, address management, acknowledgement management, and data flow. In this paper, we survey the problems of these protocols, and compare them with our MMTP that is newly designed transport protocol to overcome their problems. We introduce multidestination transfer type in MMTP. A multidestination transfers bulk error-controlled individual data from one sender to many receivers using the one 'M(multidestination)DATA' packet.
