Protocol Independent Multicast

Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM) is a network layer multicast protocol that enables efficient, scalable, and reliable multicast communication in IP networks. PIM is independent of the underlying unicast routing protocol and can be used with any IP routing protocol (such as OSPF or BGP). It achieves scalability by dynamically creating multicast distribution trees using the shortest path, and reliability by incorporating mechanisms for path redundancy, state refreshment, and error recovery. PIM is a specialized skill required for network engineers and administrators involved in designing, configuring, and troubleshooting multicast networks.
