Paper Review: IP Multicast Channels: EXPRESS Support for Large-Scale Single-Source Applications

Reviewer: Kenneth Chin

This paper attempts to introduce a mechanism designed to support for large-scale single-source multicast applications. Explicitly Requested Single-Source (EXPRESS) is the name of the mechanism.

Advantages of EXPRESS: 3 Main ideas: Unaddressed issues and unrealistic assumptions: This paper is a very good paper in the sense that it provides a more complete solution for multicast applications. The nice thing I learnt from this paper is that a small change (including a count parameter) gives recognizable achievement.
