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.
