Implementing Cisco Multicast (MCAST) — A 5 day course
Implementing Cisco Multicast provides students with in-depth knowledge of the IP multicast building blocks that make this new IP service deployable and attractive from a business perspective.
Bandwidth and processing power are wasted when data is replicated and sent from a source to potential receivers multiple times.
With IP multicast and a sophisticated group of protocols, the information is delivered with minimal impact on bandwidth and processor load.
This IP service ensures simultaneous information delivery only to the people and the machines that require the information.
Upon completion of this course, you should be able to:
- Explain the benefits of multicasting
- List various types of multicast applications and their requirements
- Identify the addressing issues of IP multicasting
- Explain the way multicast applications work and identify the prerequisites that have to be fulfilled for an implementation
- Explain the principles and detailed operation of different Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) modes
- Describe the variants of PIM sparse mode (bidirectional PIM environments and Source Specific Multicast)
- Select multicast protocols for different environments
- Describe the deployment of multicast in Border Gateway Protocol (BGP) environments
- Describe multicast deployment in Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) VPN environments
