Paper Abstract

Reliable multicasting encompasses a spectrum of applications with varying requirements. Also there seems to be a consensus among the researchers that a single protocol cannot serve the entire application space. Therefore, there is a need for a common framework which can support protocols specifically suited for various applications. This paper begins with a categorization of reliable multicasting applications followed by the description of key problems in each category. In addition, some partial solutions are provided to these problems using a tree-based hierarchical framework. It is argued that a tree-based hierarchy can potentially provide a scalable framework for reliable multicasting in general.
