ENTERPRISE CONTENT DELIVERY NETWORK WITH MULTICAST
IBM Cloud Video streaming solutions support video delivery over a multicast-enabled network, and that opens up useful new options.Multicast routing protocol, or just multicast, is a group communication protocol enabling data to be efficiently transmitted over the network. It is particularly suitable for distributing live audio or video streaming data. Here’s how it works:In traditional unicast delivery, a unique video stream must travel from the source to each viewer. With multicast delivery, the source sends a single copy of the video stream data to a multicast address, which then distributes packets to all interested recipients. The network routers between the source and recipients use multicast group membership information to calculate when to duplicate packets. As a result, bandwidth use is minimized. DOWNLOAD
