MBONE
The Internet Multicast Backbone - MBone (the Multicast Backbone) is a "virtual network" used for audio and video group conferencing. Many conferences and other events are broadcast over the MBone. A few of these are weather satelitte images of the earth, US Senate and House of Representative meetings and, "Radio Free Vat", and "internet talk radio" to name a few. The MBone Sessions are controlled throught a program called sd which lets you subscribe and unsubscribe to broadcasts. The MBone has existed since 1992. It has grown out of an "effort to multicast audio and video from meeting of the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF)". The MBone is a part of the internet. It is a network of special machines mrouters that support multicast. These machines "tunnel" to other mrouters. They take the multicast transmission and encapsulate it in a normal IP packet. mrouters at the end of the tunnels strips of the IP header and sends the packet as usual. Each tunnel has it's own copy of all the packets going over the line, so tunnels should be limited to about 2 for any given T1 link. SEE ALSO: MultiCast.
