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.
