ISO/IEC DIS 16512-2, Information technology -- Relayed multicast protocol: Specification for simplex group applications
Committee: ISO/IEC JTC1
Comment Period Closes: 2015-10-11
This Recommendation | International Standard specifies the relayed multicast protocol part 2 (RMCP-2), an application-layer protocol that constructs a multicast tree for data delivery from one sender to multiple receivers over an IP-based network, where IP multicast is not fully deployed. RMCP-2 defines relayed multicast data transport capabilities over IP-based networks for simplex group applications.
- descriptions of the entities, control and data delivery models of RMCP-2;
- description of the functions and procedures of multicast agents (MAs) to construct a one-to-many relayed data path and to relay data for simplex communication;
- description of the security features of the basic RMCP-2; and
- definitions of messages and parameters of the basic RMCP-2 and secure RMCP-2.
