Course Description

While the majority of network communications get done using a one-to-one transmission, some forms of communication are better served by using a one-to-many transmission, like a television broadcast. The internet protocol supports this one-to-many type of communication is the Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP). In this course, you'll learn to identify uses for multicasting and to list its main characteristics. You'll also learn the role of IGMP in multicasting, and finally, you'll understand how multicast routing works.
