Nokia Multicast Protocols

Course number: 3FL30640AAAAZZZZA
Course duration: 4 days
Price: $3,125 US

Course overview

This course covers multicast concepts, terminology, and protocols and provides students with key knowledge required to deploy a multicast-enabled network. It explains the efficiency gained by a network when it uses IP multicast to send traffic to multiple receivers. As far as protocols, it explains the role of the Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) in identifying the multicast receivers, as well as the role of the Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) protocol in building the multicast distribution trees. The course also covers some techniques used to provide resiliency in multicast networks. Also included in the course is Next-Generation Multicast VPN (NG-MVPN), as a scalable and flexible solution to add multicast capabilities to a VPRN service. It describes the role played by MP-BGP in the NG-MVPN solution and identifies different types of point-to-multipoint (P2MP) tunnels that NG-MVPN can use to carry multicast data traffic across the provider network, including mLDP, P2MP RSVP and BIER. The course includes hands-on lab exercises to help students practice how to implement multicast in a Nokia Service Router network. All use cases and lab exercises are based on the model-driven command-line interface (MD-CLI).

Course objectives

After completing this course, students will be able to demonstrate a solid understanding of the following topics: 

  • The efficiency gained by a network when it uses IP multicast to send traffic to multiple destinations
  • The operation of a multicast-enabled network
  • The role of the Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) in identifying the multicast receivers
  • The role of the Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) protocol in building the multicast distribution trees

 

 

  • The techniques used to provide resiliency in multicast networks
  • Next-Generation Multicast VPN (NG-MVPN), as a scalable and flexible solution to add multicast capabilities to a VPRN service
  • The role played by MP-BGP in the NG-MVPN solution
  • Different types of point-to-multipoint (P2MP) tunnels that NG-MVPN can use to carry multicast data traffic across the provider network, including mLDP, P2MP RSVP and BIER
