Hi,Im looking at adding a Resilient IPTV source to our network, which will use the same Source/Group entries as the primary Source, in the anticipation of users failing over to this in event of primary source failure.
Obviously under normal circumstances, using PIM-SM, a user would receive both streams, resulting in a corrupt output.
SSM appears to be the answer, however, having read up on it, it seems as though Receivers filter-out the source they wish to receive, based upon its MAC address, and ignore the other source (I assume the originator MAC is transmitted in an upper OSI layer). Is there a mechanism to failover to the other MAC at the receiving end, in event of failure of the primary source...?
And is this the best way to acheive my objective?
Any advise gratefully accepted, Thanks...
