IP Multicast Basics

IP Multicast Basics

This chapter describes fundamentals of IP multicast that you need to learn before configuring IP multicast features.

IP multicast enables point-to-multipoint data transmission. A multicast source sends only one copy of data, which is copied and distributed on network nodes as far from the multicast source as possible. The multicast data is sent only to the receivers that have requested the data.

NOTE:

In this chapter, the word "router" and the router icon used in figures refer to a conventional router or a Layer 3 switch.

If multicast services need to be configured in a super virtual fabric (SVF) system, make an appropriate multicast service plan to ensure that the number of multicast entries in the SVF will not exceed the specifications of the leaf switches. For the number of multicast entries supported by different leaf switches, see the feature list of the products.
