||About the SAM RG
The Scalable Adaptive Multicast (SAM) Research Group was chartered during IETF 66 (7/2006) to
investigate multicast protocols including application layer
multicast (ALM), overlay multicast (OM), native multicast, and
hybrid techniques with the goal of greater scalabality and
adaptability in terms of numbers of multicast groups and network
resources. The RG produced 2 RFCs (RFC 7019, RFC 7046) and closed shortly after IETF 88 (12/2013).
For more information, please read the original
SAM RG charter.
SAM RG was an Internet Research Task
Force (IRTF) Research Group. The IRTF focuses on longer term
research issues related to the Internet while the parallel organization,
the Internet Engineering Task Force
(IETF), focuses on the issues of engineering and
IRTF Research Groups guidelines and procedures
are described in RFC
2014 (BCP 8).
The mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org is now closed.
An archive of the email list is available at the
SAM mail archive.
