Abstract We propose the integration of peer-to-peer network overlays with underlay networking in which multi-destination multicast routing is available. Network overlay operations are parallelized by using multi-destination multicast messages in the underlying network in place of same-source unicast messages. This mechanism is generally applicable to structured overlays including one-hop, multi-hop, and variable-hop, and unstructured overlays. The main result is significant message reduction, which varies according to the overlay algorithm.
