Falko Dressler, "QoS considerations on IP multicast services," Proceedings of International Conference on Advances in Infrastructure for Electronic Business, Education, Science, and Medicine on the Internet (SSGRR 2002w), L'Aquila, Italy, January 2002.


A lot of applications do use IP multicast to communicate between several clients. Typical multicast services are multimedia transmissions from one server to many clients (broadcast) or between several clients (conference). The same infrastructure is also used for non-multimedia applications like NTP (network time protocol) or the delivery of network news. This paper should summarize current approaches to provide reliability as well as a higher quality of service (QoS). There are at least different ideas and tools to check the functionality and to measure some basic QoS parameters. Also, this paper should provide an overview on what has been done within the last years to help providers as well as end users to get an overview on which QoS they can expect from the network at the moment. Last but not least, there is a look to the current work at the IETF and to activities of some individuals.
