|ICS Code (Transport layer):||35.100.40|
This Recommendation | International Standard specifies the Enhanced Communications Transport Protocol (ECTP), which is a transport protocol designed to support Internet multicast applications over multicast-capable IP networks.
This Recommendation | International Standard specifies the ECTP for the simplex multicast transport connection that consists of one sender and many receivers. This Recommendation | International Standard specifies the protocol procedures for the following protocol operations:
a) connection creation with tree creation;
b) multicast data transmission;
c) tree-based reliability control with error detection, retransmission request and retransmission;
d) late join and leave;
e) tree membership maintenance; and
f) connection termination.
