Abstract

This draft describes how a reliable transport mechanism can be used by the PIM protocol to optimize CPU and bandwidth resource utilization by eliminating periodic Join/Prune message transmission. This draft proposes a modular extension to PIM to use either the TCP or SCTP transport protocol.
