What are three characteristics of multicast transmission? (Choose three.)
- The source address of a multicast transmission is in the range of 184.108.40.206 to 220.127.116.11.
- A single packet can be sent to a group of hosts.
- Multicast transmission can be used by routers to exchange routing information.
- The range of 18.104.22.168 to 22.214.171.124 is reserved to reach multicast groups on a local network.
- Computers use multicast transmission to request IPv4 addresses.
- Multicast messages map lower layer addresses to upper layer addresses.
Explanation:Broadcast messages consist of single packets that are sent to all hosts on a network segment. These types of messages are used to request IPv4 addresses, and map upper layer addresses to lower layer addresses. A multicast transmission is a single packet sent to a group of hosts and is used by routing protocols, such as OSPF and RIPv2, to exchange routes. The address range 126.96.36.199 to 188.8.131.52 is reserved for link-local addresses to reach multicast groups on a local network.
