Research on IGMP and its Implementation for Switch Management
Based on a kind of new intelligent controller for industrial Ethernet: ICIE (Intelligent Controller for Industrial Ethernet), this paper proposed a new mechanism to minimize the congestion which is based on the taking an adaptive decision during transferring multicast messages by IGMP snooping. It has a further discussion on services design on the switch. And it analyzes on the implementation for switch management for ICIE. It is through the external devices solicitation of join messages that allow the IGMP Snooping component to correctly decipher on which ports the downstream listeners are connected.
