Today launches the first of many of our new INE Video Blog series.  Our first video covers the advanced design issues with running Multicast and Auto-RP over NBMA networks such as Frame-Relay Hub-and-Spoke.  Specifically this video focuses on possible solutions such as sparse-dense mode, sparse-mode with auto-rp listener, sparse-mode with a default RP placement, and PIM Join issues related to point-to-point vs multipoint interfaces and their underlying IGP protocols.

Be sure to open the video in a new YouTube window to view it in fullscreen 720p HD resolution.

Like I said this video is just the first of many in our new INE Video Blog series.  If you have a specific topic that you’d like to see covered feel free to send us an email request at
