Multicast over MPLS

I was just wondering if its possible to run multicasting over MPLS? If so, could you give me a site where I could find the information regarding my question and how to configure it. Thanks in advance.

Re: Multicast over MPLS

There is a feature called Multicast VPN (MVPN). It provides Multicats services to clients connected to an MPLS VPN Service Provider.

Get a look at the following links:

Let me know if you can't acces the second document. I will email it to you.

Re: Multicast over MPLS

Hi there! Thanks for your help. However, I'm having problems in implementing Multicast over MPLS. I have already configured the requirements in the documents after thouroughly reading it, but still it doesn't seem to work. Pardon my ignorance, but do I have to configure MSDP for this kind of application? We've been implementing MPLS for almost 2 years now but this is the first time that a client of mine needs multicast in their MPLS link. I setup a lab for this one, and been testing it for almost a week, but nothing seems to work. I would like to ask if you could help me further. Maybe you could provide me a sample config. Thanks in advance!

Re: Multicast over MPLS

What multicast routing protocol are you using in your core? SSM?? Is every link in your core configured for pim? What protocol is the customer using pim-sm?? If so have you configured their RP on your PE's?
