MS Multicast Routing Overview

Certain Cisco Meraki switches support multicast routing; specifically, Protocol Independent Multicast - Sparse Mode (PIM-SM).  PIM-SM on Cisco Meraki switches conform to the RFC7761 standard.  A firmware upgrade may be required to enable this feature, as detailed in each section.

 

Supported Models for PIM-SM: MS250, MS350, MS410, MS420, MS425

Configuring PIM-SM

PIM-SM is available as of firmware version MS 9.1. For MS250 switches, firmware MS 9.7 is required.

To configure PIM-SM:

  1. Navigate to Switch > Configure > Routing and DHCP.
  2. Select the interfaces that require multicast routing.
  3. Under multicast support, select Enable multicast routing.
  4. Click Save.
  5. Once saved, navigate back to Switch > Configure > Routing and DHCP.  The Multicast Routing section will now be available.
  6. Click Add a rendezvous point .
  7. Enter the rendezvous point (RP) and multicast group information.  This can be a multicast routing enabled interface or custom IP for a third-party RP.
  8. Click Save.
