In this paper we introduce a new scheme to achieve fast failure recovery in IP multicast based content delivery, which is based on efficient extensions to the Not-via fast reroute (FRR) technique. The design of such an approach takes into account distinct characteristics of IP multicast routing, namely receiver-initiated and state-based, and it offers comprehensive protections against both simple and complex network failures. We also specify in the paper moderate extensions to the standard PIM-SM routing protocol in order to equip individual repairing routers with necessary knowledge for dynamically binding protected multicast trees with pre-established Not-via tunnels that are able to automatically bypass failed network components. Our simulation experiments based on both real and synthetically generated topologies indicate promising scalability performance in the proposed multicast FRR approach. © 2010 IEEE.
