High performance networking with guaranteed Quality of Service is one of the major challenges of the next decade. It mandates very important efforts to provide multimedia and multicast communications to wide area advanced users, because the limited mechanisms of UDP and TCP cannot adequately support innovative distributed applications.
Furthermore, future architectures will involve heterogeneous networks, as new satellite and terrestrial networks having sophisticated services. As a consequence, GCAP aims at developing for the future Internet two new end-to-end multicast and multimedia transport protocols, embedded in a new global architecture to provide a guaranteed QoS to advanced Multimedia Multipeer Multinetwork applications. In order to rapidly experiment the proposed solutions, an efficient deployment of the communication software will be developed over an industrial IPv6 layer by using a programmable active network based technology.
