PIM-SM is short for Protocol Independent Multicast Sparse Mode. In this mode, an MDT is set up when receivers actively join a multicast group. PIM-SM is applicable to the network on which group members sparsely reside. RP maintenance, RPT construction, and multicast source registration are involved in PIM-SM.

PIM-SSM is similar to PIM-SM but maintaining RPs, constructing RPTs, and registering multicast sources are not required. In PIM-SSM, an SPT can be directly set up between a multicast source and group members as long as the source is routable. Therefore, PIM-SSM has a distinct advantage in inter-AS multicast data forwarding.
