The newscast model is a general approach for communication in large agent-based distributed systems. The two basic services - membership management and information dissemination - are implemented by the same epidemic-style protocol. In this paper we present the newscast model and report on experiments using a Java implementation. The experiments involve communication in a large, wide-area cluster computer. By analysis of the outcome of the experiments we demonstrate that the system indeed shows the scalability and dependability properties predicted by our previous theoretical and simulation results.
