MPLS to support multicast traffic

Dear Gurus,

Does EoMPLS passes multicast traffic? Before my customer can pass multicast traffic (video) thru our Metro-Ethernet network. What we did is migrate the connection to our EoMPLS network, and then suddenly the video is not working.

Thanks.

Hi Jeff,

Yes it should work. The PE doesn't process the packet at all and send everything received on the AC to the PW.

Please provide more details about your issue (topology, configuration,..). Does the customer see the PIM join/prune messages over this PW ?

Re: MPLS to support multicast traffic

Hi Laurent,

Its just modulator that converts some analog videos to digital but uses multicast, the multicast data are transmiited by the modulator and received on the other end by the demod. Below is the topology

Before:

Modulator----metro-ethernet----metro-ethernet----demodulator

Current Setup:

Modulator----metro-ethernet---MPLS-ROUTER-----------------MPLS-ROUTER---metro-ethernet----demodulator

Hi,

Is your PW UP and running ? Is unicast traffic flowing over it ?

Please post the Hw and the configuration of both sides.

Thanks

Re: MPLS to support multicast traffic

You can transport multicast traffic via pseudowire.  If you terminate the multicast any where it will replicate and produce major pixelization.
