QoS control for multicast over the Internet is necessary to provide high quality multicast video streaming. With existing DiffServ multicast schemes, multicast traffic in a DiffServ domain increases as the multicast-group membership grows, and consequently packets guaranteed for delivery may be discarded. Since it is hard to guarantee QoS for all flows over the entire network, we propose DERACS a delivery range control scheme which guarantees QoS in a limited delivery range formed by actively discarding packets. In this paper, we show the delivery range of DERACS through simulation and analysis.
