Multisource multicasting in IP/MPLS over WDM networks

Multisource multicasting in IP/MPLS over WDM networks Multicasting applications such as multimedia conferencing, online multiplayer interactive games, and distance learning are becoming increasingly popular. With multiprotocol label switching, Internet protocol networks can offer quality of service and traffic engineering capabilities. This article introduces several approaches for multisource multicast sessions in the context of IP over WDM networks and evaluates their performance in terms of blocking probability, time complexity, and memory consumption. Our simulation study shows that among all the approaches, the newly proposed approach, known as one Bidirectional Tree with Just enough bandwidth reserved on each link of the tree, achieves the best overall performance.
