Multicast Design Solutions

Chapter Description

In this sample chapter from IP Multicast, Volume II: Advanced Multicast Concepts and Large-Scale Multicast Design, you will examine several archetypical network design models and best practices for multicast deployments.


When designing a multicast infrastructure, items to consider are desired replication points, multitenancy, and scalability. In addition, redundancy, reliability, and resiliency are primary design elements.

Transporting multicast messages is critical in health care, wireless networks, data centers, utilities, market exchanges, service provider networks, and, of course, LANs and WANs. The better you understand the different multicast service offerings and the desired outcomes for your organization, the better you will be able to provide a service that is redundant, reliable, and resilient.
