Incrementally Deploying the Bloom Filter-Based Scalable Multicast Protocol

Free registration required

Executive Summary

Scalable multicast protocol design based on the Bloom filter has received much attention from the research community recently. With the Bloom filter-based design, routing information is carried by the multicast data packet in the format of a Bloom filter. As the network node has no need maintaining a forwarding state for each group it is supporting, the Bloom filter-based multicast protocols are more scalable compared with the traditional IP multicast. However, as these protocols require networking nodes involved to perform special Bloom filter-based processing and the legacy routers can not be all upgraded over night, the incremental deployment solution for the Bloom filter-based multicast protocols is still an open technical issue.
