Multicast Deployment on an IPv6 Network

Multicast Deployment on an IPv6 Network

This section describes typical multicast service scenarios on an IPv6 network and applications of multicast protocols. Configure multicast services based on the actual situations and service requirements on your network. This section provides only deployment of basic multicast services.

Before deploying IPv6 multicast services on a network, ensure that IPv6 unicast routes on the network are reachable.

Application Position


IPv6 PIM (mandatory)

IPv6 PIM must be configured on all interfaces of Layer 3 multicast devices, including all interfaces of RouterA, RouterB, RouterC and RouterD.

For the configuration procedure, see IPv6 PIM Configuration.

IPv6 PIM sends multicast data from multicast source to RouterC and RouterD connected to multicast receivers.

MLD (mandatory)

MLD must be configured on user-side interfaces of Layer 3 multicast devices RouterC and RouterD.

For the configuration procedure, see MLD Configuration.

MLD allows receiver hosts to join or leave multicast groups, and allows RouterC and RouterD to maintain and manage multicast memberships.
