Abstract

We present in this work the performance
evaluation of MPEG-4 video transmission with our proposed
single rate multicast protocol named Adaptive Smooth
Multicast Protocol (ASMP). 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 under an integrated simulation environment which
extends ns-2 and Evalvid-RA to the multicast domain with
the use of the RTP/RTCP protocols. Simulations conducted
under this environment combine the measurements of
network-centric along with video quality metrics. This
“joint” evaluation process provides a better understanding
of the benefits and limitations of any proposed protocol for
multimedia data transmission.
