Hello jonk34567,

A Broadcast message is a message that is sent out to all the devices within a broadcast domain, excluding the one that originated the message.

A multicast message is a message that is selectively sent to devices that share certain common characteristic (or that they belong to a certain group), excluding the one that originated the message.

Regards,

Jaime.

Data is transported over a network by three simple methods i.e. Unicast, Broadcast, and Multicast. So let’s begin to summarize the difference between these three:

    Unicast: from one source to one destination i.e. One-to-One
    Broadcast: from one source to all possible destinations i.e. One-to-All
    Multicast: from one source to multiple destinations stating an interest in receiving the traffic i.e. One-to-Many
