Overlay Multicast and its Application for Advanced Distributed Simulation
Growing demand for use of Internet/Web-based services in large scale real-time distributed
virtual simulation (RT-DVS) and other real-time applications is fueling extensive interest
in overlay multicast protocols. These applications demand Quality of Service (QoS) and
many-to-many multicast services that are not available in underlying Internet services
today and are not likely to be offered as an open network service in the near future.
This presentation describes implementation of an overlay multicast protocol designed to
support many-to-many multicast for RT-DVS applications, called Extensible Modeling and
Simulation Framework Overlay Multicast (XOM). Focus includes the architecture and
key design considerations of XOM, as well as preliminary results from laboratory experiments
with our prototype, which will be available for download on our website.
