MTP/SO is a reliable multicast protocol based on the earlier protocols MTP (RFC1301) and MTP-2, simplifying the protocol considerably while adding self-organization of the members of the group into a hierarchy of local regions, local retransmissions, local NAK damping, and both global and local forward error correction. MTP/SO retains the coordinated many-to-many multicast model of MTP-2 while improving scalability.
