IPv6 anycast addresses

What are the IPv6 anycast addresses using for?, are they  some kind of broadcast?

I have a  router 2811  I'm configuring ipv6, do I need to use these addresses?

I appreciate any help.

IPv6 anycast addresses

Good afternoon isaac mora

They are not broadcast  addressing, anycast is a network addressing and routing methodology in which datagrams from a single sender are routed to the  nearest node (such a domain ¨www.cisco.com¨) in a group of potential receivers all identified by the same destination address.

You do not to configure this feature, just configure the Unicast ipv6 addresses,

Best regards and have a nice day
