Abstract

The Session Announcement Protocol (SAP) [3] was used to announce information for all available multicast sessions to the prospective receiver in an experimental network. It is usefull and easy to use, but difficult to control the SAP message transmission in a wide area network. This document describes the several major limitations SAP has and the requirement of multicast session announcement in the global Internet.
