Multicast applications for large-scale Mobile Ad hoc NETworks (MANETs) require an efficient and effective Quality of Service (QoS)-aware multicast model. The new requirements to guarantee QoS are high availability and good load balancing due to limited bandwidth and transmission power of Mobile Nodes (MNs). In this paper, multicast routing protocol namely Hypercube based Team Multicast Routing Protocol (HTMRP) has been proposed to address the scalability in mobile ad hoc networks. In HTMRP team multicasting is proposed where the multicast group does not consist of individuals rather, member teams.
