CCIE R&S 400-101 V5.1 Written Exam: Explain MLD

In this article, I will be discussing Cisco Explain MLD as part of Layer 2 Technologies and Layer 2 Multicast CCIE Routing and Switching (R&S) V5.1 exam blueprint topics.

Layer 2 Multicast

  • Explain MLD

Let me summarize some of the key takeaways related to Explain MLD as relevant to CCIE Routing and Switching (R&S) V5.1 written exam blueprint topics.

Explain MLD Exam Essentials

  • MLD is an IPv6 protocol that a host uses to request multicast data for a particular group.
  • Devices use the MLD protocol to learn whether members of a group are present on their directly attached subnets. Hosts join multicast groups by sending MLD report messages.
  • By default, IPv6 MLD snooping is globally disabled on the switch and enabled on all VLANs.
  • Packets delivered to group members are identified by a single multicast group address. Multicast packets are delivered to a group using best-effort reliability, just like IPv6 unicast packets.
  • Enabling PIMv6, statically binding a local multicast group or enabling link-local group reports automatically enable MLD

I sincerely hope that you found this article and video helpful. Please post your questions or suggestions in the comments and tell me how you are preparing for your CCIE Routing and Switching (R&S) V5.1 written and lab exams.
