This study addresses the performance evaluation of several approaches for multi-source multicasting in IP/MPLS over WDM network. Traffic demand in communication networks is growing fast as a result of many bandwidth intensive applications such as video streaming and file sharing. With the introduction of Multi Protocol Label Switching (MPLS) technology, future Internet Protocol (IP) based networks will be able to provide Quality of Service (QoS) and traffic engineering. The need of sending the same information from one node to a group of selected nodes has grown with the emergence of many applications such as video conferencing, distance learning and multi-player interactive games. Multicasting is the technique used to efficiently provide such services.
