Abstract

In the present age of communication revolution, there has been an increase in the demand for faster and more efficient protocols as network communication has started reaching to almost all ends of life. With the advancement in modern technology, establishing networks on a wide spread while at the same time using less hardware components has become much easier. This trend has led to the proposal and implementation of many network protocols which have been designed for the efficient handling of the network traffic while keeping maintenance costs to a minimum. This work gives an introduction to the existing broadcasting schemes that are applied for wide area networks, on the basis of which a new approach has been proposed that could be proven much more efficient for broadcasting in wide area networks.
