IP-Multicasting Technology Part 3: Protocol Timing, Sizing and Decoding

The various IP-Multicast protocols offer different levels of throughput and reliability. For effective IP multicasting, the timing and sizing requirements for the IP Multicasting protocols must be considered. The different timing values for each protocol are a key part of differentiating the performance requirements for your IP-Multicast applications. Values such as timer and timeout values, as well as table structure and sizing, are used to accurately calculate the timing and sizing requirements for each protocol. While the decision criteria for the selection of a particular protocol is more complex than a simple tradeoff of speed versus reliability, no single multicast protocol meets the needs of all multicast requirements.
