Abstract

With the appearance of P2P networks and the rapid progress in the technologies used to set up in-home networks, these will have an important part to play in the Future Internet and the so-called Information Society. Among the different technologies that could be used to set up an in-home network, PLC (Power-line Communications) is the one that is eliciting most interest in the industry and the scientific community. However, the leader standard in this technology (Homeplug AV) imposes major limitations when it comes to multicast transmissions. Multicast communications are extremely useful in applications which are especially popular in in-home networks so this paper proposes a new method for implementing multicast transmissions in HPAV networks.
