Description

Anycast (a one to many packet topology, but only sent to the closest)

Complete Definition

Anycast Address: Like broadcast and multicast, anycast is a one-to-many routing topology. However, the data stream is not transmitted to all receivers, just the one which the router decides is the "closest" in the network. Anycast is useful for balancing data loads. It is used in DNS and UDP.

What is anycast?

How it works? Is it related to multicast by anyway?

If we can assign Public IP address range to anycast than why do we require Anycast RP ? and MSDP?

Thank you in advance
