Abstract: Although IP Multicast has been proposed for more than a decade, its deployment is still limited to network domains under single administrative control. In addition, IP Multicast communication model is largely limited to intra-group communication, where a host is allowed to become member of a group to send or receive from the group. IP Multicast does not provide a service for a whole group to become member of the group to facilitate inter-groups communication.A novel method is developed to merge and disband groups in the Internet, which make inter-groups communication more pervasive. It is designed to work without modifying IP Multicast routing protocols or changing the existing Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP). It can operate without depending on multicast support from router. A prototype has been implemented successfully to demonstrate the feasibility of the proposed method. Performance evaluation results have shown that the implemented prototype manages to perform reasonably well.
