"Delayed-multicast" is a novel transmission technique which uses internal nodes in the transmission paths from the server to the clients to buffer data streams. The buffers are used to service later requests without having to start new streams from the server, thus bringing the benefits of traditional multicast without the constraint that all requests must be serviced at the same time. We describe our new scalable "delayed-multicast" framework and present an optimal resource allocation algorithm that minimizes the total bandwidth required to service a set of requests.
