Managed Ethernet Switches are offered with IGMP snooping.

Available with 5-24 ports in copper or copper/fiber combinations, EISX_M, EICP_M, and EISB_M Series are available with IGMP (Internet Group Management Protocol) snooping. IGMP ensures group multicast traffic is forwarded to group member ports of switches and automatically ages out all learned multicast-port associations for devices which stop responding to query messages. Switches can also...
