Real-time applications (e.g. videoconferencing, multimedia education etc.) have strict Quality of Service requirements that must be guaranteed by the underlying network. Most real-time multicast routing schemes involve computing constrained multicast routing trees, that is, the QoS requirements of a real-time application are usually expressed in terms of constraints that the multicast routing algorithm must satisfy. Many things indicate, however, that routing problems in high-speed networks (e.g. ATM networks) are very complex.
In this project, we study various multicast routing schemes for high-speed networks, especially for ATM networks.
