Learn to design, implement, and troubleshoot IP multicast-enabled networks. In this 5-day instructor-led course, you will learn how infrastructures are multicast enabled to support the efficiency of multicast business applications and services. Learn to identify Cisco products and protocols required to implement multicast solutions in both local and wide area networks within your enterprise and beyond. You will implement services at each layer of the network to obtain membership to multicast groups in a working environment. Our hands-on labs will give you access to several multicast applications and troubleshooting tools.
