Methods and arrangements for multicasting a data stream at different data rates to groups of subscribers

Image Number 6 for United States Patent #7009971.

Methods and arrangements for propagating a data stream among a plurality of nodes in a distributed network at different rates. A first group of at least one subscriber node receives a data stream from a publisher node at a first rate, at least one additional group of at least one subscriber node receives a data stream from the publisher node at a second rate. For each of a plurality of frames in the data stream, it is ascertained as to which of the groups of at least one subscriber node are to receive each frame in the data stream. A single multicast transmission of each frame in the data stream is then propagated.
