Methode, Systeme und Absender zur Durchführung der Mehrfachaussendung

Abstract

The invention relates to a method and system to arrange multicasting in a communication system that comprises a first source (S) and receiver (R) connected to the source (S) by the SSM protocol (Source Specific Multicasting). In the method according to the invention, the first source (S) sends a message on the activity of the source to the receiver (R). The invention enables discovering several sources on the SSM channel by using the Source Active message according to the MSDP protocol (Multicasting Source Discovery Protocol).
