Multicast is a communication between one or multiple senders and multiple receivers, which used as a way of sending IP datagrams to a group of interested receivers in one transmission. Core-based trees major concerns are core selection and core as single point of failure. The problem of core selection is to choose the best core or cores in the network to improve the network performance. In this thesis we propose a multiple core selection approach for core-based tree multicasting, senders can select different cores to have an efficient load balanced multicore multicasting approach. It will overcome any core failure as well.
