Abstract

Multicasting is an efficient way of group communications because one sender can transmit data to multiple receivers with only one transmission. Furthermore, multicasting is considered an appropriate transmission method for multimedia services. Multimedia applications are expected to become more prevalent over mobile ad-hoc networks in the near future. Therefore, achieving reliability in multimedia communications is an important task. In this paper, we propose a leader-based reliable multicast medium access control layer protocol for multimedia applications to enhance video quality. We present a Markov chain model and numerical formulation of our proposed system.
