In this paper, we propose a novel agent-based satellite reliable multicast transport protocols (ASMTP) for data dissemination over broadband satellite networks. This protocol employs agent in receivers group to implement reliable multicast transport for satellite networks. Packet level FEC and local error recovery are used to recover the correlated and uncorrelated packet losses. Flow and congestion control scheme are also deployed in ASMTP. Performance evaluation by simulations shows that ASMTP generally outperforms MFTP and achieves high scalability.
