Abstract
In a multicast ABR service, a connection is typically re­
stricted to the rate allowed on the bottleneck link in the
distribution tree from the source to the set of receivers.
Because of this, receivers in the connection can experience
inter­receiver unfairness, when the preferred operating rates
of the receivers are different. In this paper we explore the
issue of improving the inter­receiver fairness in a multicast
ABR connection by allowing the connection to operate at
a rate higher than what is allowed by the multicast tree's
bottleneck link. Since this can result in cell loss to some
receivers, we operate with the knowledge of each receiver's
