Which multicast protocols do Huawei AR series enterprise routers support

14

In versions earlier than V200R005C00, the Huawei AR Series Enterprise Routers support the following multicast protocols:
-Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP)
-Protocol independent multicast sparse mode (PIM-SM)
-Protocol independent multicast dense mode (PIM-DM)
-Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP)
-IGMP Snooping and MLD Snooping

NOTE:
AR150&AR200 series routers and AR1200 series routers do not support IGMP Snooping and MLD Snooping.

In V200R005C00 and later versions, the Huawei AR Series Enterprise Routers support the following multicast protocols:
-Multicast Source Discovery Protocol (MSDP)
-Protocol independent multicast sparse mode (PIM-SM)
-Protocol independent multicast sparse mode (PIM-SM) for IPv6
-Protocol independent multicast dense mode (PIM-DM)
-Protocol independent multicast dense mode (PIM-DM) for IPv6
-Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP)
-Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD)
-IGMP Snooping and MLD Snooping

NOTE:
AR120&AR150&AR160&AR200&AR500 series routers, AR510 series routers and AR1200 series routers do not support IGMP Snooping and MLD Snooping.

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.

Which Huawei switches support static multicast router ports
Currently, all the switches support static router interfaces. After Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) snooping is enabled on a switch, the switch forwards IGMP Report messages to an upstream multicast router only through the router port. A router port is dynamically learned by the switch after the interface receives a General Query message or PIM Hello message from the upstream multicast router. If the multicast router cannot send IGMP General Query messages, the router port must be statically configured.
