Content and data from several types of applications (e.g., live video streaming, software downloads) are well suited for delivery via multicast means. The use of multicast for delivering such content or other data offers significant savings in terms of utilization of resources in any given administrative domain. End User (EU) demand for such content or other data is growing. Often, this requires transporting the content or other data across administrative domains via inter-domain peering points.
