MultiCast Library Version 3
MultiCast Library Version 3 is an implementation of the ALC (Asynchronous Layered Coding) and NORM (NACK-Oriented Reliable Multicast Protocol) content delivery Protocols, and of the FLUTE/ALC file transfer application. This software is an implementation of the large scale content distribution protocols standardized by the RMT (Reliable Multicast Transport) IETF working group and adopted by several standardization organizations, in particular 3GPP for the MBMS (Multimedia Broadcast/Multicast Service), and DVB for the CBMS (Convergence of Broadcast and Mobile Services). Our software is used in operational, commercial environments, essentially in the satellite broadcasting area and for file delivery over the DVB-H system where FLUTE/ALC has become a key component.
