  Project Goals:
  1. Simulation of unicast forwarding since in real life both unicast and multicast communication pattern are used in the same network.

  2. Simulation of Reverse Path Multicasting using a special data structure to store the information.

  3. Evaluation of the algorithm efficiency in the case of the large internetworks (up to 10000 nodes).

  4. Comparison with another multicast forwarding algorithm, Core-Based Trees, which was preliminary created to overcome the limitations of Reverse Path Multicasting
