Abstract: - Now a day’s plenty of algorithms and techniques are available for optimization and multicast forwarding. But in this research we are improving the scalability (Efficiency) of IP multicast and source specific multicast and to reduce the number of routers for required storing the forwarding states. The Multicast forwarding mechanism optimizes the allocation of forwarding states in routers and which can be used to improve the scalability of traditional IP multicast and Source-Specific Multicast. Our mechanism needs fewer routers in a multicast tree to store forwarding states and therefore leads to a more balanced distribution of forwarding states among routers. There are two problems are available here. The first one is by using the MINSTATE algorithm to reduce the sum of the number of routers that store forwarding states in a multicast tree. The Second one is BALANCESTATE to minimize the maximum number of forwarding states stored in a router for all multicast groups. By getting the Optimal Solution for MINSTATE we used distributed algorithm and approximation algorithm for the BALANCESTATE.
