Given the packet size used and the range of packet loss rates that can occur on the Mbone, receiver-only mechanisms--such as packet repetition--cannot repair speech successfully .
The loss characteristics over the Mbone vary; a reasonable working assumption is that packet loss follows a random pattern.
Ongoing research is addressing a number of current problems and future Mbone developments that have an impact on packet loss solutions.
Held in San Jose last month, Precept multicast the conference live on the Internet MBONE.

When doing multicasting utilizing MBone, the sender does not know who will receive the packets.
As previously mentioned, MBone is a virtual network running on "top" of the Internet.
Not only does this enable more of the Internet's routers to route multicasts without tunneling, it also allows Autonomous Systems running MOSPF to become part of the MBone
As a pioneer in the commercialization of MBone technology, we want to help ensure that the broadest possible body of academic and research personnel have low-cost access to membership in the MBone community.
With Precept's IP/TV Viewer for the MBone, users can watch programs being transmitted from a VIC/VAT server or an IP/TV server anywhere on the Internet, choosing from a list of programs scheduled to run on the MBone.
Telecom Finland deploys high-speed ATM (asynchronous transfer mode) technology for the Internet backbone which supports Mbone and multicast technology.
The Mbone is an outgrowth of the first two Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) ``audiocast'' experiments, in which live audio and video were multicast from the IETF meeting site to destinations around the world.
