PIM-SSM

The PIM protocol supports source-specific multicast (SSM) with the assistance of filtering provided by IGMP version 3 and MLD version 2, which are described in Ciena Vyatta Network OS IGMP and MLD Configuration Guide. With PIM-SSM, neither an RP nor a shared distribution tree is used. Instead, a source-specific distribution tree is constructed for each (S,G).
