- The goal of the HyperCast project is to
investigate, by analysis and implementation, protocol mechanisms which can achieve highly
scalable (super-scalable) multicast communications on the Internet.
The core approach is to organize multicast group members in very highly symmetric
topologies, and use the these for the exchange of control information between
multicast group members.
- This Web site: This website will be
used for posting information on the HyperCast project, and to give access to research
papers and software related to the HyperCast project.
- The HyperCast
project is supported by the National Science Foundation under grant
- We appreciate the support of Tower
Technology's donation of the TowerJ
Java compiler. A report on the performance increase due to the use of
the Java compiler will be posted shortly.
