This paper presents a new approach for building shared trees which have the capability of providing multiple routes from the joining node onto an existing tree. The approach follows a design parameter of CBT and PIM in that it operates independently of any unicast routing protocol. However, a paradigm shift is introduced such that trees are built in an on-demand basis through the use of a one-to-many joining mechanism. In addition, the paper presents optimisations of the new mechanism to help constrain its impact in the case where many receivers exist for a given multicast group.
