 In Ad hoc networks, providing reliable multicast service is very challenging. Providing reliable multicast service is very challenging in Ad Hoc networks. In this work, an efficient loss recovery scheme is proposed for reliable multicast. The notion of cooperative communications is applied to support local loss recovery in multicast. A receiver node experiencing a packet loss tries to recover the lost packet through progressively cooperating with neighboring nodes, upstream nodes or even source node. In order to reduce recovery latency and retransmission overhead, the proposed scheme caches not only data packets but also the path which could be used for future possible use to expedite the loss recovery process. Both analytical and simulation results reveal that proposed scheme significantly improves the reliable multicast performance in terms of delivery ratio, throughput and recovery latency compared with User Datagram Protocol (UDP) and Pragmatic General Multicast (PGM).
