IP Multicast, Volume I: Cisco IP Multicast Networking thoroughly covers basic IP multicast principles and routing techniques specific to modern Cisco routing and switching environments. Thorough and fully up to date, it offers pragmatic discussions of common features, design approaches, deployment models, and field practices for any contemporary IP multicast network and application. It also presents specific commands and start-to-finish methodologies for implementing and troubleshooting a wide spectrum of Cisco IP multicast networks. Coverage includes: * Core IP multicast concepts and applications as applied in modern Cisco networks * Network access and Layer 2 multicast (including layered encapsulation, IGMP group management, switching multicast frames, and more) * Layer 3 multicast concepts, including hosts and Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) modes * PIM in depth: basic forwarding trees, Rendezvous Point (RP) mechanics, propagation of RP mapping information, and widely-used forwarding modes * IP multicast design considerations and implementation: scoping multicast enterprise networks, forwarding replication, MFIB/MRIB, and more * Best practices for improving IP multicast security and resiliency * IPv6 multicast networks: Layer 2 and Layer 3 * Implementation differences in NX-OS, IOS, and IOS-XE * Multicast network operation and troubleshooting, including tools and methodologies
