Abstract The development of hybrid multicast simulation models is required for analyzing proposed hybrid multicast architectures such as those from the IRTF Scalable Adaptive Multicastw Research Group. However most network layer simulators don't scale to the number of nodes needed for analyzing large overlays, and most overlay simulators don't have multicast routing models needed for analyzing hybrid approaches. In this work we have extended the OverSim simulator and INET framework which run on OMNET++ to include a multi-destination multicast routing protocol (XCAST). This paper describes our implementation experience.
