Campus Multicast and Internet

Hi All,

We have a multicast running in our campus network. there is a requirement to extend the same multicast to mobile/home users over the internet. Is this possible and if yes what all will it take to enable this.

Hi,

IPmc is the way to go.

Find below mentioned document.

Re: Campus Multicast and Internet

Something to keep in mind, multicast is an efficient method to forward one stream, for n recipients, between multicast routers. If the routers along the way are not doing true multicast routing or each end recipient has a unique path, you've loss one of the real advantages of multicast. One or both issues are often true when dealing with multicast on the Internet. If the traffic is very, very light, then a techology as proposed by the other poster (Satish's IPmc), multicast might logically simplify supporting an application.
