Management of voice based group communication
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (Two Years)), 20 credits / 30 HE creditsStudent thesis
Communication between groups of people is becoming increasingly desirable as mobile telephony is merging with the existing Internet. For GSM, this is being done via GPRS, which is the first step towards the standard for 3G mobile telephony systems, UMTS. Managing groups and the members within them in order to ensure consistency, is a challenging task. The use of multicast is a great help, especially when designing a solution for WANs, where flooding should be avoided.
This report discusses some of the aspects of group communication and group management. The report compares alternative membership algorithms and describes a solution for adding group support to Ericsson Daemon system. Also, a prototype working like a voice newsgroup is described.
