Course Overviewremove_circle_outline

This two-day course is designed to provide students with detailed coverage of multicast protocols including Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP), Protocol Independent Multicast-Dense Mode (PIM-DM), Protocol Independent Multicast-Sparse Mode (PIM-SM), and Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP). Through demonstrations and hands-on labs, students will gain experience in configuring and monitoring the Junos operating system and in monitoring device and protocol operations.

Course Objectivesadd_circle_outline

After successfully completing this course, students should be able to:

  • Identify the components of IP multicast
  • Explain how IP multicast addressing works
  • Identify the need for reverse path forwarding (RPF) in multicast
  • Explain the role of IGMP and describe the available IGMP versions
  • Configure and monitor IGMP
  • Explain the differences between dense-mode and sparse-mode protocols
  • Describe rendezvous point (RP) discovery options
  • Configure and monitor PIM dense and sparse modes
  • Configure and monitor rendezvous point discovery mechanisms
  • Explain the purpose and operation of MSDP
  • Describe the usage of MSDP within a single PIM domain with Anycast RP
  • Describe the usage of MSDP across multiple PIM domains
  • Configure and monitor MSDP
  • Compare the any-source multicast (ASM) and source-specific multicast (SSM) service models
  • Describe the basic requirements, benefits, and caveats of SSM
  • List the address ranges used for SSM
  • Illustrate the role of IGMPv3 and PIM-SM in an SSM implementation
  • Configure and monitor SSM
  • Describe the default PIM sparse mode information distribution
  • Explain how routing policies alter PIM message traffic
  • Describe how MSDP advertises messages to established peers
  • Identify the role of a policy in controlling MSDP message advertisement
  • Explain how you can use a policy to scope multicast groups
