Implementing Cisco Multicast(MCAST)

Students will learn to successfully design, implement, and troubleshoot IP multicast-enabled networks. 

This course provides students with in-depth knowledge of the IP multicast building blocks that make this new IP service deployable and attractive from a business perspective.  Bandwidth and processing power are wasted when data is replicated and sent from a source to potential receivers multiple times.  With IP multicast and a sophisticated group of protocols, the information is delivered with minimal impact on bandwidth and processor load.  This IP service ensures simultaneous information delivery only to the people and the machines that require the information.  It is suggested that candidates have CCNA Certification or equivalent work experience prior to enrollment.  It is also strongly recommended that candidates have successfully completed BSCI.  This course is for pre- and post-sales technical engineers responsible for designing, implementing, and/or troubleshooting basic to advanced IP multicast enabled networks within a single domain.
