We discuss congestion control mechanisms in multicast transport protocols and we propose TCP-M - a TCP-friendly Multicast transport protocol. TCP-M uses IP multicast to deliver data packets and acknowledgements to provide reliability. Ack implosion at the source is prevented by fusing acknowledgements at some intermediate routers. TCP-M reacts to network congestion exactly like TCP by having the sender emulate a TCP sender.
