Summary

 

Multicasting offers a number of advantages for applications that need to communicate with multiple endpoints without the overhead of broadcasting. In this chapter, we defined multicasting and presented the different multicasting models. We then discussed the different IP multicasting options, including IPv4 and IPv6 multicasting, IPv4 source multicasting, and reliable multicasting. Finally, we covered ATM point-to-multipoint communication.
