Address Management and Connection Control for Multicast Communication Applications
An architecture and associated protocols are presented for managing multicast addresses and performing connection control for applications that use multicast communication facilities. A scheme to partition the multicast address space on the basis of the network number is proposed an underlying IP-based internetworking environment is assumed, and its performance and scaling characteristics are discussed. A protocol is then developed to provide for dynamic allocation and release of multicast addresses, as well as maintaining state information for a connection. The protocol is independent of the address partitioning scheme, and hence is essentially applicable to any network layer; it is also shown to be robust and e cient. Finally, we describe two di erent mechanisms, namely address-based ltering and virtual port numbers, which enable the use of a common port number by all session participants.
