Implementation Specification of Channel Reflector


In this document, we detail an implementation specification of ``Channel Reflector''. Channel Reflector (CR) offers an effective policy and scope control technique for multicast channel announcement without use of a traditional SAP advertisement. It appears as a hierarchical directory system and each end user accesses this system as a regular Web server and retrieves available channel information via his Web browser. According to this property, we have designed the CR implementation which can work with a common and well-known http server and database implementations. More precisely, our CR has been implemented as modules used with an Apache http server. In addition, while the channel information including the policy configuration is defined in XML format in CR, all the information are converted and stored in MySQL efficiently. Such the implementation strategy reduces the operator's maintenance cost and finally contributes to the easy deployment.
