Configure Multicast

Prisma SD-WAN allows to configure multicast.
Prisma SD-WAN extends the capabilities of the Layer 3 LAN interface to include multicast. Multicasting is a well-known one-to-many or many-to-many distributed form of network communication. It allows the sender to send single examples of the data packet as streams and distribute those packets only to the hosts interested in receiving that traffic.
