A Showcase on Usage and Monitoring of the HAMcast Architecture for Universal Multicast,
In: Proc. of the 36th Annual IEEE Conference on Local Computer Networks (LCN'11, Demo Session), Oct. 2011.

Abstract: The principle of group communication can be found in many applications, that exchange data between multiple senders and receivers. While multicast technologies provide efficient data distribution mechanisms, they also raise a variety of issues concerning service deployment, availability and usage. HAMcast provides an architecture to overcome existing problems of current multicast technologies and offers a universal groupcommunication service. The design of the H AMcast-architecture combines the concepts of an abstract naming scheme for multicast groups, a common multicast API and a service-middleware for endsystems. In this demo proposal we present a software prototype of the HAMcast-architecture. For our demo presentation we build a live-lecturing software that uses the multicast API and service of H AMcast to send and receive a video-stream and group-chat. Further, we introduce a multicast monitoring framework, that we developed to visualize network state, multicast trees and node information.
