Abstract

We introduce Adaptive Smooth Multicast Protocol
(ASMP), for multimedia transmission over best-effort networks.
The smoothness lays in the calculation and adaptation of the
transmission rate, which is based on dynamic estimation of
protocol parameters and dynamic adjustment of the “smoothness
factor”. ASMP key attributes are: a) adaptive scalability to large
sets of receivers, b) TCP-friendly behavior, c) high bandwidth
utilization, and finally d) smooth transmission rates, which are
suitable for multimedia applications. We evaluate the
performance of ASMP and investigate its behavior under various
network conditions through extensive simulations, conducted
with the network simulator software (ns2).
