MLD snooping functionality

Multicast Listener Discovery (MLD) snooping optimizes multicast traffic across the network to prevent traffic from flooding ports on a VLAN.

  • For example, one of the features of MLD snooping lets you configure the network so that traffic is forwarded only to ports that initiate an MLD request for multicast.
  • Another feature of MLD lets you enable a setting so that packets that do not match the configured version are dropped.
  • You can also block ports from traffic.
