Case Study #3: Radio Broadcasting – Multicasting

Radio companies need to feed their programs a set of FM transmitters scattered over a wide territory in Africa. The challenge is to send the signal to each repeater reliably and at a low cost. There are several techniques: optical fibre, microwaves and satellite. Nowadays, thanks to multicast technology, the satellite solution is the simplest to use, fastest to implement, most reliable and least expensive.
