Hybrid Adaptive Mobile Multicast

A Component within a Multiservice Internet Architecture

  • Objective: Developement and experimental analysis of a group communication component as part of a multi-service Internet architecture
  • HAMcast follows an evolutionary model
    • Implementation of universal service middleware
      • Decouples the processes of application developement and infrastructure developement
  • Core components
    • Open multi-service architecture
    • Universal, layer-transparent API
    • Mobility-transparent routing
    • ISP service interaction between overlay and underlay
  • Evaluations based on experiments, measurements at IXPs and analytical work
