Title

SMDS Multicast Support in ATM Network

Abstract

In this paper we show that an ATM network equipped with Connectionless Servers (which are interconnected by a CLS overlay network) can adequately support SMDS multicasting as well as other key SMDS features. We argue that multicast traffic is most efficiently transmitted on multicast trees, and propose a scheme for the computation and maintenance of such trees exploiting the underlying routing procedure. We then review a number of CLS network design options and variables, namely, encapsulation, on-the-fly transmission, packet dropping and virtual topology. We evaluate the impact of these choices on the multicast service.
