We have developed a network architecture that achieves ATM multicast communication services with receiver-specified quality of service (QoS) guarantee which depends on the dynamic resource environment of the receivers (e.g. CPU capability, memory capability, and network capability). We propose two receiver-initiated QoS guarantee methods and concentrate on the functions required to achieve them. Moreover, on our ATM testbed, we also evaluate the performance of an experimental implementation of the proposed methods.
