The MBONE Deployment Working Group is a forum for coordinating the
deployment, engineering, and operation of multicast routing protocols and
procedures in the global Internet, inter-domain and single domain. This
activity will include, but not be limited to:

- Document deployment of multicast routing in the global Internet.

- Receive regular reports on the current state of the deployment of multicast
technology. Create "practice and experience" documents that capture
the experience of those who have deployed and are deploying various multicast

- Based on reports and other information, provide feedback to other relevant
working groups.

- Develop mechanisms and procedures for sharing operational information to aid
in operation of the multicast backbones and interconnects.

- Analyze the need for IPv4 - IPv6 multicast transition solutions

- Develop tools and protocols that assist in multicast administration,
diagnostics, troubleshooting and deployment between/within native and
non-native environments. While development of routing and group membership
protocols is out of scope, this working group may develop requirements and
assist in review and feedback of documents in other working groups responsible
for such protocols.
