Question about Computers & Internet
Yes, it supports Layer 3 multicast networking, also supports IPv4 PIM SSM.
Protocol Independent Multicast-Source-Specific Multicast (PIM-SSM) enables a user host to rapidly join a multicast group if the user knows a multicast source address. PIM-SSM sets up a shortest path tree (SPT) from a multicast source to a multicast group, while PIM-SM uses rendezvous points (RPs) to set rendezvous point trees (RPTs). Therefore, PIM-SSM implements a more rapid join function than PIM-SM.
Different from the any-source multicast (ASM) model, the SSM model does not need to maintain an RP, construct an RPT, or register a multicast source.
The SSM model is based on PIM-SM and IGMPv3. The procedure for setting up a multicast forwarding tree on a PIM-SSM network is similar to the procedure for setting up an SPT on a PIM-SM network. The receiver's DR, which knows the multicast source address, sends Join messages directly to the source so that multicast data streams can be sent to the receiver's designated router (DR).
