Recent research efforts have concentrated on determining how the distributed workplace can be transformed into a shared virtual environment. Interaction among people and process virtual worlds has to be provided and improved. To enhance the usability of our virtual collaborative environment we integrated a multicast communication environment. With the availability of global information highways, 3D graphical intercontinental collaboration will become a part of our daily work routine. This paper describes the basics of our network infrastructure and the multicast support. As a proof of concept, a virtual world scenario is also presented in this paper.
