CAN/CSA-ISO/IEC 14476-1:04 (R2022)
Information technology - Enhanced communications transport protocol: Specification of simplex multicast transport (Adopted ISO/IEC 14476-1:2002, first edition, 2002-06-15)
Standards development within the Information Technology sector is harmonized with international standards development. Through the CSA Technical Committee on Information Technology (TCIT), Canadians serve as the Canadian Advisory Committee (CAC) on ISO/IEC Joint Technical Committee 1 on Information Technology (ISO/IEC JTC1) for the Standards Council of Canada (SCC), the ISO member body for Canada and sponsor of the Canadian National Committee of the IEC. Also, as a member of the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), Canada participates in the International Telegraph and Telephone Consultative Committee (ITU-T).
This International Standard was reviewed by the CSA TCIT under the jurisdiction of the Strategic Steering Committee on Information Technology and deemed acceptable for use in Canada. (A committee membership list is available on request from the CSA Project Manager.) From time to time, ISO/IEC may publish addenda, corrigenda, etc. The CSA TCIT will review these documents for approval and publication. For a listing, refer to the CSA Information Products catalogue or CSA Info Update or contact a CSA Sales representative. This Standard has been formally approved, without modification, by the Technical Committee and has been approved as a National Standard of Canada by the Standards Council of Canada.
This Recommendation | International Standard specifies the Enhanced Communications Transport Protocol (ECTP), which is a transport protocol designed to support Internet multicast applications over multicast-capable IP networks.
This Recommendation | International Standard specifies the ECTP for the simplex multicast transport connection that consists of one sender and many receivers.
This Recommendation | International Standard specifies the protocol procedures for the following protocol operations:
a) connection creation with tree creation;
b) multicast data transmission;
c) tree-based reliability control with error detection, retransmission request and retransmission;
d) late join and leave;
e) tree membership maintenance; and
f) connection termination.
