Link Utilization Based Multicast Congestion Control


Networking is the important part of the computer networks. Multicasting is also one of the essential areas of networking. In multicasting, sender can send information or data to the group of end receivers in a single transmission. It is a big issue because of more data demands of receivers which cause the congestion. Multicast is one of the crucial method to avoid congestion and make network perform stably. In this paper, we propose, link utilization algorithm to deal with multicast congestion control. We propose the equation to improve the utilization of the channel or link. The simulation results show that proposed work provide the better throughput of the network with respect to sending rate, queue size, packet loss ratio and time.
