Course Description

Sending traffic from one source to a single destination is called unicast. Sending traffic from one source to everyone in the subnet is called a broadcast. Sending traffic from one (or multiple) sources to a group of receivers is called multicast. These lessons explain the different protocols we require to make multicast work on our routers and switches.

Course Highlights

In this course you will learn:

  • What multicast is and the protocols we use.
  • The different addresses we use for multicast.
  • How we use PIM on routers to route multicast traffic.
  • The different PIM modes: sparse, dense and sparse-dense mode.
  • And many other topics…
