Title
Protocol Independent Multicasting Dense Mode (PIM-DM)

Applicability

This specification defines a multicast routing algorithm efficient for multicast groups that are densely distributed across a network. This protocol does not have a topology discovery mechanism often used by a unicast routing protocol. It employs the same packet formats sparse-mode PIM uses. This protocol is called dense-mode PIM.
