Network-Driven Layered Multicast with IPv6
Receiver-driven Layered Multicast (RLM) has previously been proposed to distribute video over the best-effort heterogeneous IP networks. Although RLM can avoid network overloading in multicast, its rate control mechanism performs poorly under bursty traffic conditions, which is the characteristic of today's Internet. In this paper, we propose a new scheme called Network-Driven Layered Multicast (NLM) which makes use of IPv6, the next generation IP. Although IPv6 is not currently used in the Internet and MBone, it will be undoubtedly adopted in the near future due to the running out of IPv4 address space. With the new priority-dropping feature offered by IPv6, the rate adaptation control process in our scheme is much simplified and the reception rate at receivers can be optimized even under bursty background traffic conditions.
