Multicast technology is one-to-many communication, oppositely from the usual one-to-one (unicast) communication, which provides an efficient solution to create multiparty collaborative software by delivering the data flows on an appropriate distribution tree. The root of the distribution tree is the sender and its leaves are the receivers. Many Internet applications, such as distributed simulation, remote education, and videoconference require the underlayer network to support multicast communication.
