ICMI - Implementing A Cisco Multicast Infrastructure On-Site Training
ICMI - Implementing A Cisco Multicast Infrastructure
In this 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.
What You'll Learn

Engineers responsible for designing, implementing, and troubleshooting IP multicast-enabled networks; IT personnel who may implement streaming voice/video/data services in an enterprise, including ISPs and those in financial service enterprises, the health care industry, or cable TV companies; those preparing for the CCIE practical exam.

We have developed additional in-depth labs that complement those recommended by Cisco. The network core contains a 3550 switch and six routers in a pod and there may be up to two pods. Our ICMI labs aren't demos-they provide the tools and real-world scenarios for hands-on practice and learning. All configuration, monitoring, and debugging is done by you.
Lab 1: Multicast Applications and Addressing
Utilize PC multicast applications such as SDR, Whiteboard, Audio, and Video tools to create and view session announcements, join existing multicast groups, understand multicast session parameters and options, and exchange multicast data.
Lab 2: Setup and Configuration
Wire the lab and utilize the Cisco IOS to configure each router in the student group for initial operation. You'll also set up each PC in the group. To get the idea about IGMP and how it works, you will observe the periodic sending of IGMP packets in your network before and after the receivers announce their presence and when they decide to leave the multicast group.
Lab 3: IGMP Configuration and Operation
Configure IGMP and PIM on the routers and monitor them with IOS commands. Identify addresses used for Session Announcement Protocol, and router interfaces will join a group. Monitor the effects of IGMP Snooping on the 3350 switch in this lab.
Lab 4: PIM Dense Mode Configuration
Configure PIM on all routers. Baseline the network with no multicast source and no receivers. Initialize the multicast source, set router interfaces to join the group with no receivers, and observe dense mode impact on RPF. Then, you'll compare the network with PIM Dens
