HAMcast - Developers Webpages


Overview

HAMcast provides a system architecture for a universal multicast service. The concept combines an abstract naming scheme (based on URIs), a common API and a system-centric service-middleware, as well as gateways (IMGs) to cross technological and administrative network borders. The HAMcast network stack is developed at the  INET research group, HAW Hamburg. The current software release contains the multicast API (C++ & JAVA libraries) for group application development, the middleware as a userspace systemservice, and several multicast-technology modules. An additional tool set including a hybrid tree monitoring is supplied, as well.

The HAMcast stack is still work in progress, comments and contributions are very welcome, join our developers mailing list.
