The packet losses of reliable multicast protocols in a wireless network that occur more often due to unreliable wireless links cause a significant degradation in performance in the form of retransmitted packets implosion. In this paper we consider a transparent proxy server that perform local retransmissions across a wireless link and present the analytic model of performance of reliable multicast protocols with a transparent proxy server at basestation. By using analytical models, we show that the receiver initiated multicasting protocols with a transparent proxy server yields higher protocol throughput than without one.
