Being the only CCNA in work I always get the harder stuff
Looking some advice about Multicasting on a layer 2 only network.
It's a IP camera system with a number of cameras in multiple locations that need to connect to client machines. Currently we have a third party MPLS switch system between these sites that can't handle the existing traffic. I assume everything is unicasting back and causing congestion on the network.
This was only mentioned to me as I was going on holidays so don't have alot of information. So forgive me as i'm just trying to get myself up to speed before I go back !
This is my idea. Would it be possible to connect switches that are set up for multicasting into the third party MPLS switches. Would this allow the multicasts to be setup and would it go through the MPLS switches as multicasts or would they see it as a broadcast ?
Many Thanks for any help !
