Workshop on Peer-to-Peer Multicasting 2007 (P2PM'07)

at IEEE Consumer Communications and Networking Conference 2007 (CCNC 07)

Las Vegas, NV, USA - January 11, 2007


8:10 AM - 9:10 AM Keynote: Multicast Help Wanted: From Where and How Much? (slides)
Prof. Kevin Almeroth, University of California Santa Barbara

Abstract: Multicast holds a unique position in the pantheon of "Internet services". A large group of researchers deride it and call it a failure. But multicast is neither a deployment failure nor is it without numerous important lessons for researchers and practitioners. In fact, the deployment difficulties of "native multicast", the subsequent development of huge numbers of overlay/application-layer/end-system multicast solutions, and the continued lack of widespread use in commercial applications are experiences that hold significant lessons. The state-of-the-art is to identify the meaning of these lessons. If multicast is to become a success, what needs to happen? And even if the tasks are clear, can it be accomplished? And even if the tasks are doable, which key players have to participate? And even if the players are known, can they all be brought together? This talk will attempt to answer some of these questions; provide a perspective on the pitfalls to avoid; and motivate continued progress towards a workable solution.
