Abstract
Multicast protocols target applications involving a large
number of receivers with heterogeneous data reception ca­
pabilities. To accommodate heterogeneity, the sender may
transmit at multiple rates, requiring mechanisms to de­
termine the rates and allocate receivers to rates. In this
paper, we develop a protocol to control the rates of a multi­
cast session, with the goal of maximizing the inter­receiver
fairness, an intra­session measure that captures the col­
lective ``satisfaction'' of the session receivers. Our target
environment is the Internet, where fair sharing of band­
width must be achieved via end­system mechanisms and
