This is the Rough Cut version of the printed book.

IP multicast is central to today's enterprise and service provider networks. However, the set of technologies and practices surrounding IP multicast has evolved and matured: older books on the topic are severely out of date. IP Multicast Architectures offers comprehensive guidance for deploying modern IP multicast systems of all kinds: basic and advanced, enterprise and service provider.

Focused on Cisco devices and technologies,IP Multicast Architectures addresses common features, deployment models, and field best practices. Each section offers immersive real-world explanations of multicast theory, and present multiple case studies showcasing best-practice multicast design methodologies. Each case study is carefully crafted to offer pragmatic "first-hand" guidance for building the right network for each environment and set of applications.

Coverage includes Layer 2 and Layer 3 multicast; routing, forwarding, domains, inter-domain routing, wireless multicast forwarding, Inter-AS, mVPN, mVRF, cloud mVPN transport, and much more. Throughout, the authors' configurations, designs, features, and parameters reflect all that's been learned since IP multicast first became widespread.
