In a wireless network, bandwidth is a scarce resource and low power consumption is desired for mobile hosts. These constraints have not been taken into account in the multicast IP model. In this paper, we present a general framework for multicasting optimized for wireless IP systems. A general wireless IP access system has been taken as a starting reference. A specific group membership protocol has been developed for this system. The effect of mobility on multicasting has been investigated in a mobile IP environment. This multicasting scheme has been applied to the wireless IP system developed within the ACTS project Magic WAND (Wireless ATM Network Demonstrator).
