Multicast communication is by definition greedier in bandwidth than unicast communications within the same number of receivers. The design of a multicast congestion control algorithm is then an important and useful task. There are two potential approaches for congestion control: within the network (it involves routers and distribution trees rather than simple paths as in the unicast case), and end-to-end.
