Paper Abstract

This paper describes the design, implementation, and evaluation of a broadcast trivial file transfer (BTFTP) protocol, which can be used as an efficient data transport protocol for networks that inherently support hardware broadcasting, such as Ethernet, wireless LANs, and cable TV networks. We show that BTFTP out-performs FTP on an Ethernet environment when there are more than two clients, and the performance difference increases as the number of clients increases.
