Protocol Independant Multicast
Sends Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) notifications.
An IP multicast routing protocol used for routing multicast data packets to multicast groups. PIM is unicast routing protocol-independent and can operate in different modes such as sparse mode and dense mode.
Protocol Independent Multicast. A multicast routing architecture defined by the IETF that enables IP multicast routing on existing IP networks. Its key point is its independence from any underlying Unicast protocol such as OSPF or BGP.
Protocol Independent Multicast. Multicast routing architecture that allows the addition of IP multicast routing on existing IP networks. PIM is unicast routing protocol independent and can be operated in two modes: dense mode and sparse mode. See also PIM dense mode and PIM sparse mode.
Protocol Independent Multicast. A protocol-independent multicast routing protocol. PIM sparse mode routes to multicast groups that might span wide-area and interdomain internets. PIM dense mode is a flood-and-prune protocol.
