ABSTRACT
Part 1 of this series discussed a solution for running Multiprotocol Label Switching virtual private networks (MPLS VPNs) across a service provider?s native IP network. Yet, MPLS VPNs support only unicast routing, whereas many of the enterprise customers that use the service run applications that require IP multicast. <p>This article examines multicast VPN (mVPN),which provides the ability to support IP multicast across MPLS VPNs. Service providers can thus offer IP VPN services that support unicast and multicast applications.</p>
