The tussle in IP multicast, where different enablers have interests that are adverse to each other, has led to a halt in inter-provider multicast deployment and created a situation in which enabling inter-domain multicast routing is considered a deterrent for network providers. This paper presents ODMT (On-demand Inter-domain Multicast Tunneling), an on-demand inter-provider multicast tunneling that is autonomous in operation and manageable through its definable policy control. In the architectural design, we propose a new approach of enabling inter-provider multicast by decoupling the control-plane and forwarding-plane. Focusing on the control-plane without changing the forwardingplane, our solution changes the traditional open multicast service model into a more manageable service model in inter-domain multicast operation, hence it eases the Internet-wide multicast deployment.
