Chapter 2. Draft-Rosen Multicast Virtual Private Networks
In this chapter, we move to the next level in understanding how IP multicast can be extended to a BGP & MPLS based Layer 3 Virtual Private Networks. In other words; enabling an organization or enterprise deploy a private multicast infrastructure across a shared carrier MPLS network.
discussed the building blocks of IP Multicast and the need for IP Multicast in general. We went into great depth of analyzing the various applications that benefited from using Multicast for transport, and their requirements from the underlying network infrastructure. In this chapter we move to the next level in understanding how IP Multicast can be extended to BGP- and ...
