This book provides the reader with information on the current technologies, concepts and issues relating to IP multicast network design, integration, and migration. A series of real-world examples will be presented to provide practical internetwork scenarios, with detailed descriptions of the network design recommendations. In each case, a solution and a design is recommended to address the different types of issues, such as scalability, migration, backup, availability, and performance. Part 1 provides an introduction to IP multicast concepts. Part 2 discusses intradomain multicast routing, while Part 3 addresses specific design and debugging considerations for Cisco multicast networks. Part 4 discusses layer 2 multicast issues, including multicasting over LAN switches and ATM networks.
