Course Description


The Implementing Cisco Multicast (MCAST) v2.0 course teaches you the fundamentals of IP multicasting, including multicast applications, sources, receivers, group management, and IP multicast routing protocols such as Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) used within a single administrative domain. You will learn about issues in switched LAN environments and reliable IP multicasting, and technical solutions for simple deployments of IP multicast within a provider or customer network. The course reviews the configuration and troubleshooting guidelines for implementation of IP multicast on Cisco® routers. Labs offer hands-on experience to help you prepare to deploy IP multicast successfully.


After taking this course, you should be able to: Describe IP multicast services Identify IP multicast issues on a data link layer Explain why Protocol Independent Multicast Sparse Mode (PIM-SM) is the most current scalable IP multicast routing protocol Describe Rendezvous Point (RP) distribution solutions Recognize the drawbacks of the PIM-SM and describe two extensions to provide possible solutions Explain basic concepts of Multiprotocol BGP (MP-BGP) and its use in the IP multicast environment Configure and deploy Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP) in the interdomain environment Describe solutions to mitigate security issues in the IP multicast network Describe the process of monitoring and maintaining multicast high-availability operations Design multicast-related application and network solutions in customer and service provider networks
