Key Features

  • Offers contextualized case studies for illustrating deployment of the Next Generation Multicast technology
  • Provides the background necessary to understand current generation multi-play applications and their service requirements
  • Includes practical tips on various migration options available for moving to the Next Generation framework from the legacy


The growth, scale, and prominence of video applications over the years have placed emphasis on the most scalable and efficient way to deliver multi-play content (voice, video and data) to the end user. Multicast is the most effective and efficient carrier of video applications from a network standpoint. Financial organizations deploy large-scale multicast infrastructures to enable trading and e-commerce. The introduction of 4G and beyond makes this technology even more indispensible since mobile operators need an efficient mechanism to deliver repetitive content to many a handset, and multicast is the answer.

This is the first book to distill information on this topic from disparate sources. It is written by one of the early implementers, and is the go-to reference for deploying the Next Generation model. This book proves a real benefit to networking professionals from service providers, enterprises, the vendor community, and anyone else who wants to understand this fast emerging and popular scheme of deployment from a vendor-neutral standpoint.


network designers and architects, technical sales professionals, professionals pursuing technical certifications offered by equipment vendors, and those who are involved in designing and deploying the framework for multicast, video and related applications

Quotes and reviews

"The content of this book is influenced by the authors’ personal rich experience in networking industry. As a result, the book includes numerous practical examples, code snippets and console outputs illustrating various aspects of multicasting. Moreover, Joseph and Mulugu provide plenty of diagrams and charts to visually demonstrate how data is being sent through the network. Consequently, the reader can quite easily explore complex topics of next generation multicasting introduced in the book… I recommend this book to network professionals (designers and architects, as well as system administrators) involved in planning and maintaining of multicast-enabled networks, as well as network visionaries, technical sales professionals, as well as architects and programmers working on designing and deploying of video related applications."--IEEE Communications Magazine
