Distance Vector Multicast Routing Protocol (DVMRP)
 
 

EION Open IP Environment Distance Vector Multicast Routing Protocol (DVMRP) module dynamically generates IP Multicast delivery trees and enables forwarding of multicast packets along these multicast tree branches.



DVMRP Highlights and Literature

EION Open IP Environment DVMRP module demonstrates the following key features:

  • Provides routing information to IP for forwarding multicast datagrams towards destination networks.System
  • Implements the Reverse Path Multicasting algorithm to calculate the shortest path back to the source that generates the multicast traffic.
  • Implements efficient techniques like Pruning and Grafting to reduce unnecessary data traffic
  • Implements the Poison Reverse technique to create an optimal multicast delivery tree along which datagrams are forwarded
  • In multi-access networks if more than two DVMRP Routers arepresent, an implicit Router election decides the forwarder of the multicast packets on the network
  • Supports Graceful Shutdown by informing the Neighbors, whenever the protocol is disabled
  • Routes advertised are split and sent across the whole Route update interval to avoid flooding
  • Most frequently used routes are cached, resulting in efficient forwarding of Multicast datagrams.
  • Provides support for dynamic learning of host membership information from M-RTM embedded IGMP functionality
