    Abstract 
      This document describes a framework for IP multicast based on 
      the software defined networking paradigm.  The framework enables 
      flexible allocation of multicast responsibilities to designated 
      control and forwarding elements, and provides for multicast 
      path computation and programming of the forwarding plane. The 
      objective of this framework is to enable network operators to 
      support IP multicast in an IP/MPLS core free of Protocol-
      Independent-Multicast (PIM) and MPLS multicast control. The 
      forwarding paradigm provides for multicast replication over 
      unicast and multicast overlays at designated edges, and for 
      native IP and MPLS multicast replication and forwarding in the 
      core.
