IP Multicast: Get ready for the future of Enterprise broadcasting!

With multicasting, it's possible to send data, video, and audio to many requesting clients simultaneously, across the Internet or any other IP-based network. Multicasting is an essential building block for a new generation of applications, such as leading-edge "push" applications (including news and sports updates, real-time stock quotes, and others),software distribution, and certain multimedia applications.

In this book, Thomas A. Maufer-co-author of the "Introduction to IP Multicast Routing" Request for Comments (RFC)-closely examines the protocols which make multicasting possible - and the challenging routing issues that arise in enterprise Multicasting. Maufer explains the rationale for multicast, describes important classes of multicast-enabled applications, and the essentials of multicast IP technology, including the "host group" model and the Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP).

Ensure successful deployment of a multicast infrastructure over your existing networks by understanding how multicast routing protocols work.Protocols such as the Distance Vector Multicast Routing Protocol, Multicast Extensions to OSPF, Protocol-Independent Multicast - Dense Mode are discussed, along with the exciting new Protocol-Independent Multicast - Sparse Mode, and Core Based Trees protocols.

Multicast-based transport protocols are discussed, including the Realtime Transport Protocol (RTP), and so-called "reliable" multicast transport protocols are examined. Finally, watch IP Multicast at work in two leading-edge deployments: Networld+Interop's InteropNet, and NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory.

Understand IP Multicast now -- and deploy it tomorrow.

  • Practical deployment considerations for enterprise intranets
  • Current and future intranet multicast routing protocols
  • Current and emerging applications: Conferencing, whiteboards, news updates, live or pre-recorded media streaming events, software distribution, reliable multicast transport protocols, the Service Location Protocol, etc.
  • Multicast routing interoperability frameworks, "reliable" multicast transport protocols, the Realtime Transport Protocol, and more
  • The history and possible future evolution of the Internet's Mbone
  • For all network engineers and managers developing multicast-enabled applications for use on the Internet or intranet
