A Survey of Multicast Routing Protocols in Ad-Hoc Networks
Multicast routing in wireless networking is the newest technology that works with network groups. Multicast routing plays an important role in point-to-point or multipoint-to-multipoint communications. Multicast routing gives wireless networks more efficient, reliable and secure than unicast routing, because the speed of the protocols and techniques that are developed or combined on multicast routing to work with wireless technology. There are a lot of multicast routing protocols, some of them works with wired networks while the others work with wireless; some protocols deal with both wired and wireless networks.
