New deployment of multicast routing in Internet Service Provider networks is through the use of the PIM-SM [PIMSM], MSDP [MSDP], and MBGP [MBGP] protocols. This informational document describes several solutions for the connection of different types of multicast routing domains. In particular, the problems and solutions for the connection of a stub intra-domain multicast routing domain to a transit (ISP) PIM-SM domain are addressed.
