The experiment shows that Multi-Constrained Anypath Routing (MAP) consumes less scheduling time when compared with Multicast/Broadcast Service (MBS) Module, Opportunistic Routing and On-Demand Multicast Routing Protocol (ODMRP).
Long Lifetime Multicast Routing Protocol (LLMRP) [23-24] is a routing mechanism derivative of ODMRP.
Core selection problem in multicast routing protocol, using core-based tree to forward multicast data, affects directly the structure of the tree and the performance of the routing scheme of multicast accordingly.
We investigate the minimum-hop based Multicast Ad hoc On-demand Distance Vector (MAODV) routing protocol [18], the minimum-link based Bandwidth-Efficient Multicast Routing Protocol (BEMRP) [16] and our recently proposed non-receiver aware and receiver aware multicast extensions to the Location Prediction Based Routing protocol [9], referred to as NR-MLPBR and R-MLPBR protocols [10] respectively.

Toward this goal, the Proteon MOSPF implementation also includes a DVMRP implementation and the "glue logic" allowing routing information to be passed between the two multicast routing protocols.

The Bandwidth Efficient Multicast Routing Protocol (BEMRP) is a classical example of the minimum link-based source-tree multicast routing protocols as the protocol attempts to minimize the number of additional links that get incorporated when a new receiver node joins an already existing multicast tree.
PIM-DM has a simpler design compared with multicast routing protocols that have mechanisms embedded for discovery of the existing network topology such as DVRMP.
