OMNET MULTICAST PROJECTS

In Multicast routing protocol  transmission method  one device communicates with several devices in a single transmission.A multicast address is a single IP data packet set that represents a network host group. Multicast addresses are available to process datagram’s or frames intended.

Different Ranges of multicast address:

Multicast address ranges from the 224.0.0.0 to 239.255.255.255. IPV4-reserved address for multicast

  • 224.0.0.0: based address reserved
  • 224.0.0.1: Used for all multicasting host groups
  • 224.0.0.2: Used for all subnet routers
  • 224.0.0.5 and 224.0.0.6: Used by Open Shortest Path First, an interior gateway protocol for all network segment routing information.

Procedures involved in setting multicast network:

  • Routers in the network’s are multicast enabled
  • Configurations of multicast network is also support multicast enabled.
  • Select the address you’ll use for your multicast

Algorithm involved in multicast routing protocol:

  • Reverse path multicasting.
  • Flooding.
  • Core-based tree.
  • Spanning trees.
  • Truncated reverse path broadcasting.
  • Reverse path broadcasting etc.

Many different algorithm can be implemented for multicast routing protocol projects depending upon requirement of your projects.,
