Incorporating Multiple Sources into AMTree Protocol

AMTree protocol is an active network based protocol that makes sending packets to receivers-after source migration-an efficient process. AMTree protocol was designed and tested for one mobile source sending to the multicast group. In this research we introduce a method that allows more than one mobile source to send to the multicast session. The results show that end-to-end latencies are minimized when more than one mobile source in the group compared to latencies for group with only one source.
