Lateral Error Correction for Time-Critical Cluster Multicast License
Ricochet is a low-latency reliable multicast protocol designed for time-critical clustered applications. The design uses IP multicast for data transmission and includes a novel repair mechanism in its implementation of lateral error correction. Unlike current multicast schemes, which scale poorly and can cause long latency, Ricochet was designed for scalability to provide a fast and reliable multicast scheme for layering under high-level abstractions such as publish-subscribe, group communication, and replicated service/object infrastructures.
