Increasing numbers of ISPs have begun implementing multicast infrastructure. Soon the Internet will provide multicast connectivity between any two points on the Internet the way it provides for unicast traffic today. Long-evolving protocols are reaching maturity, and enterprise networks and ISPs around the world are ramping up their multicast infrastructure. Now, more than ever, network engineers must be ready to deal with new applications that capitalize on the simultaneous, efficient delivery of data and imagery to multiple recipients.
Interdomain Multicast Routing is the key to unlocking the complexities of this growing technology. Starting with a summary of the technology and its relevant protocols, this book shows readers the big picture before revealing a detailed analysis of important protocols and the way they work with one another. Throughout, the authors focus on both Cisco Systems and Juniper Networks technology--the two leading vendors of routers and routing technology. Real-life examples are used to clearly illustrate key concepts. Specific topics covered in Interdomain Multicast Routing include:
- Background and in-depth analyses of multicast routing using PIM-SM and MSDP
- Comparison of Any-Source and Source-Specific multicast delivery models
- Explanation of how MBGP and M-ISIS can be used side by side to build a dedicated multicast environment
- A detailed breakdown of the differences between IGMP versions 1, 2, and 3
- A step-by-step guide to understanding the MSDP RPF-peer selection rules
- Lists of packet formats for IGMP, PIM, and MSDP
- A complete glossary that clarifies important terms and acronyms and provides their definitions
Practical and thorough in coverage, Interdomain Multicast Routing is an important addition to any network engineer's bookshelf.
