An examination of the scalability of multicast interactive applications
1999 (English)Independent thesis Advanced level (professional degree), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Abstract [en]

This Master Thesis discusses some issues of scalability in interactive applications that uses multicast. Two prototype applications made by the author that highlights some problems of scalability are also described. The first application, mIR, multicast Interactive Radio, is a system for distributing high quality audio that provides interactive services to the listeners. The other application is m3DE, multicast 3D Environment, a distributed multiuser 3D environment, where users can interact with each other. Conclusions about the applications are that mIR is scalable if the problem of reliability is solved by redundancy and not a reliable multicast protocol. For m3DE, it is the application itself, especially the memory requirements that are the restricting factor for scalability.
