Hierarchy Level


Point-to-multipoint LSP for IGMP snooping enables multicast data traffic in the core to take the point-to-multipoint path. The effect is a reduction in the amount of traffic generated on the PE router when sending multicast packets for multiple VPLS sessions because it avoids the need to send multiple parallel streams when forwarding multicast traffic to PE routers participating in the VPLS. Note that the options configured for IGMP snooping are applied on a per-routing-instance so all IGMP snooping routes in the same instance will use the same mode, point to multipoint or pseudowire.
