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).

2, 1588v2 procotol
GPHF support this protocol, GPSF cannot support.

3, Queue scheduling hierarchy
GPHF 4-level HQoS, GPSF 2-hierarchical HQoS

Actually, GPSF is more popular among people, but if you have high requirement for the above points, then you can consider GPHF for you MA5800 X7 or MA5800 X17.

How do I turn on muticast


In most cases "multicast" is on in devices. For example, that's how your Windows computer finds "other devices" on the network (through UPnP). However if your task requires more like "global presence", it depends on devices that build your network - switches, routers, firewalls, WiFi, etc. Some of them may support natively, some may require special configuration, and some may not support multicast at all. Then, when it gets bigger, it comes to the "multicast protocols" (for example, IGMP, PIM, etc.).

What is your goal? Depending on that you may need to discover your options.

Good luck,
