Title: An Application Developer's Perspective on Reliable Multicast for Distributed Interactive Media
Published: ACM Computer Communication Review 30 (3), pp. 28-38, July 2000
Keyword(s): Reliable Multicast, Distributed Interactive Media
Abstract: In this paper we investigate which characteristicsreliable multicast services should have in order tobe appropriate for use by distributed interactivemedia applications such as shared whiteboards,networked computer games, or distributed virtualenvironments. We take a close look at thecommunication requirements of these applicationsand at existing approaches to realize reliablemulticast. Based on this information we deducewhich reliable multicast transport protocols areappropriate for the different aspects of distributedinteractive media. Furthermore we discuss how theapplication programming interface of a reliablemulticast service should be designed in order tosupport the development of applications fordistributed interactive media.
