Summary: 
In this paper, how the new service of non-authenticated multicasting can be implemented on the AWA system is described. The AP is forced to send IGMP packets periodically in order to keep transmitting IP multicast data grams. The program tables of the non-authenticated multicast are transmitted as IP multicast data to allow the all clients to receive the material. Furthermore, the list of program tables which shows the pairs of the ID of the AP and the IP address of the program table are used so that different APs can offer different program tables and programs. Experiments on non-authenticated multicasting were successfully conducted and we confirmed that the proposed service works well.
