Reducing forwarding state overhead of multicast routing protocols is an important issue towards a scalable global multicast solution. We propose a new approach, dynamic tunnel multicast, which utilizes dynamically established tunnels on unbranched links of a multicast distribution tree to eliminate unnecessary multicast forwarding states. Analysis and simulation results show promising reduction in the state overhead of sparse mode multicast routing protocols
