    1314'''R.1:''' It has been decided that a feedback-free reliable multicast protocol will be used and that all feedbacks will be sent through TCP. This is because then
     15
    1416- reliable feedbacks can then be ensured,
    1517- explicit control over the feedback message content can be allowed,
     
    1820- existing messages being sent from the NodeAgent to the NodeHandler can be modified to
    1921  serve the dual purpose of providing feedbacks too.

    2023MCLv3 is an Open Source Implementation of the ALC and the NORM Reliable Multicast Protocols. Of these 2 protocols, only the use of the ALC/LCT protocol is being explored here. This is because the ALC/LCT protocol is feedback-free and also it provides an unlimited scalability. NORM lacks both these attributes.
