Fundamentals of IP Multicast (IP Multicast Survival School Series)

More than 5 hours of video instruction to help you understand, deploy, and manage, basic IP Multicast networks.


Fundamentals of IP Multicast provides the Network Engineer with a basic set of IP Multicast “survival tools” to go alone and unafraid into the world of IP Multicast and deal with much of what IP Multicast throws at them.

Award-winning IP Multicast presenter, Beau Williamson, debunks the myth that IP Multicast is a scary and difficult-to-understand technology. Through network topology presentations, configuration scenarios, guidance through some common mistakes that network engineers make, deployment recommendations, and know-how, Beau paints IP Multicast as an approachable networking solution.

Lesson Descriptions

Lesson 1 kicks off with a history lesson of the justification for why Multicast was created, before moving on to an examination of flood and prune protocols, and an exploration of explicit signaling protocols. It wraps up with a look at some of the characteristics of IP Multicast.

Lesson 2 provides coverage of IPv4 Multicast addresses and how they map to Layer 2 to become Multicast MAC-layer addresses.

Lesson 3 covers the fundamentals of IP Multicast, including forwarding, routing, and tree building.

Lesson 4 explores the IGMPv3 protocol before moving on to a look at how hosts join, stay on, and leave a source Multicast tree. The lesson wraps up with a comparison of the previous IGMP versions as well as an exploration of IGMP snooping technology.

Lesson 5 introduces SSM with a review of the origins of PIM-SSM, before moving on to a look at the fundamentals of SSM and how to configure SSM in your network. The lesson concludes with an examination of barriers to SSM deployment and how to use and configure SSM mapping to mitigate those barriers.

Lesson 6 begins by exploring basic BiDir Multicast concepts before moving on to coverage of BiDir shared trees. Finally, the lesson concludes with coverage of how to configure BiDir Multicast in your network.

Lesson 7 examines what makes Multicast difficult for network engineers, before shifting to coverage of ASM concepts and how to configure a simple ASM network.

Lesson 8 reviews the history of Inter-Domain Multicast before diving briefly into MP-BGP and MSDP, and concluding with a look at how Inter-Domain Multicast Forwarding operates.

Lesson 9 explores Cisco Auto-RP, IETF BSR, Anycast-RP using MSDP, as well as Anycast-RP using PIM.

Lesson 10 reviews the origins of the BIER multicast model, before diving in behind the basic concepts behind BIER, and concludes with a look at how BIER works in a Multicast domain

Lesson 11 wraps up the course with an exploration of IPv6 Multicast addressing, listener discovery, RP choices, and contrasts between IPv4 and IPv6 Multicast.>
