Increasing demand for multicast transmission necessitates service-specific and precise quality-of-service (QoS) control. Since existing works provided limited methodologies such as best path selection, their ability is restricted by the given topology and the congestion status of the network. This paper proposes a fanout set partition (FSP) scheme to realize QoS-guaranteed multicast transmission. The FSP scheme adjusts the delay of the multicast flow by dividing its fanout set into smaller subsets. Since it is carried out based on the service requirement, service-specific QoS control is implemented. Mathematical analysis investigates the trade-offs, and the performance evaluation results show significant improvements under various traffic conditions.
