About This Network Configuration Example
This network configuration example (NCE) provides an overview and a step-by-step example for configuring and deploying multicast in a financial services environment. This NCE defines multicast deployment for market data delivery and illustrates how multiple feeds flow through an active/active SRX Series Services Gateway cluster.
The instructions in this example cover configuring protocols such as PIM sparse mode (PIM-SM), Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP), and BGP on QFX and SRX Series devices. The instructions also cover configuring two SRX Series devices in active/active cluster mode to provide high-availability for multicast traffic. This document is intended for security and IT engineers, as well as network architects.
