Network Engineering: Multicast Performance Analysis over Internet2

Time 10/03/01 01:15PM-02:30PM

Session Abstract

IP multicast is in the initial stages of implementation in Interent2. However, there is a great interest in understanding the behavior and performance of IP multicast in Internet2 environment. This project is intended to perform experiments and collect data on IP multicast traffic over Interent2. This data will be analyzed for performance prediction in a small experimental network as well as large-scale network. Initially, we have focused on understanding the behavior of the PIM protocol in a Sparse mode.
We plan to focus on traffic parameters like delay, availability, reliability, packet loss, quality, and response times as well as session load and bandwidth limitations.
Currently, we are in the process of compiling and analyzing data. We intend to design and develop an analytical model for larger scale study based on the collected data.
