I work for a pharma/nhs company that has a Meraki full stack and high end MS350's throughout.
We have a recently had some new patient monitoring devices installed that "require multicast".
This is literally the only instruction I had! I remember installing multicast for IPTV in the past but it was only ever a tick box enable setting from memory.
I have enabled multicast routing on the neccessary VLAN that operate these devices but I'm now getting shouted at by the dashboard that no renevous point has been configured and multicast normally requires 2 interfaces not 1 etc.
Sorry I can't be more specific but can someone recommend to me what I need to do do to satisfy the requirements of "requires multicast".
I don't have a lot of experience with multicast, but my understanding is that you only need multicast routing if you are routing multicast traffic between two or more networks. If everything is on a single LAN you just need IGMP Snooping and and IGMP Querier.
I do have an application on one of our networks that relies on multicast, all I did for that network was to create an interface on the switch closest to the multicast source and under Multicast Routing I selected "Enable IGMP Snooping Querier", then under Switch Settings I have "IGMP Snooping" Enabled and "Flood unknown multicast traffic" disabled.
