Abstract

This document provides a high-level overview of more commonly used multicast service models, principally the Any-Source Multicast (ASM) and Source-Specific Multicast (SSM) models, and discusses the applicability of the models to certain scenarios. As a result, this document recommends that ASM is not used for interdomain scenarios, and the use of SSM is strongly recommended for all multicast scenarios.
