Technical Report Number
Connection management refers to the collection of protocols, algorithms and data structure used to establish and maintain multipoint connections in the broadcast packet network. This report documents an initial proposal for a set of connection management protocols that allows user to specify arbitrary multipoint connections in flexible and application-independent fashion. It also contains a set of detailed scenarios illustrating how the protocols would be used.
