Which multicast protocols do S series switches support

S series switches support the following multicast protocols:
- IGMP: is used to set up multicast members and maintain multicast memberships on IPv4 networks. This protocol is supported by S series modular switches, S3700EI, S3700HI, S5720S-SI, S5720SI, S5700EI, S5710EI, S5720EI, S5700HI, S5710HI, S5720HI, S6700EI, S6720EI and S6720S-EI.
- MLD: is used to set up multicast members and maintain multicast memberships on IPv6 networks. This protocol is supported by S series modular switches and by S series fixed switches in V200R002 and later versions, including the S5720S-SI, S5720SI, S5700EI, S5710EI, S5720EI, S5700HI, S5710HI, S5720HI, S6700EI, S6720EI and S6720S-EI.
- PIM (IPv4): IPv4 multicast routing protocol, which includes the DM and SM modes. This protocol is supported by S series modular switches, S3700EI (supporting only the SM mode), S3700HI, S5720S-SI, S5720SI, S5700EI, S5710EI, S5720EI, S5700HI, S5710HI, S5720HI, S6700EI, S6720EI and S6720S-EI.
- PIM (IPv6): IPv6 multicast routing protocol, which includes the DM and SM modes. This protocol is supported by S series modular switches and by S series fixed switches in V200R002 and later versions, including the S5720S-SI, S5720SI, S5700EI, S5710EI, S5720EI, S5700HI, S5710HI, S5720HI, S6700EI, S6720EI and S6720S-EII.
- MSDP: is used to establish cross-domain multicast data forwarding paths. This protocol is supported by S series modular switches, S3700HI, S5720S-SI, S5720SI, S5700EI, S5710EI, S5720EI, S5700HI, S5710HI, S5720HI, S6700EI, S6720EI and S6720S-EI.
- Multicast VPN (MVPN): is used to forward multicast data on a private network to the public network. This protocol is supported by S series modular switches and by S series fixed switches S5720EI (from V200R010C00), S5700HI (from V200R005C01), S5710HI (from V200R005C02), S5720HI (from V200R010C00), S6720EI (from V200R010C00), S6720S-EI (from V200R010C00).
- IGMP snooping: implements accurate multicast data forwarding on a Layer 2 network (A Layer 3 network is an IPv4 network). This protocol is supported by all S series switches.
- MLD snooping: implements accurate multicast data forwarding on a Layer 2 network (A Layer 3 network is an IPv4 network). This protocol is supported by S series switches except the S1700.
