The Internet Group Management Protocol (IGMP) is a communication protocol of the multicast transfer data in the IP networks. IGMP is used by routers and IP hosts for organizing the network devices in groups.

IGMP is a part of IP multicast. IGMP is located at the network level. It is used only on IPv4 networks. IGMP can be used for one-to-many networking applications such as online streaming video and online gaming.

This example was created in ConceptDraw PRO using the Computer and Networks solution from the Computer and Networks area of ConceptDraw Solution Park. It shows the architecture of the network for delivering a multicast service using IGMP. IGMP is used by the client computer and the neighboring switches to connect a client and a local router that implements a multicast. Then between the local and remote routers is used the Protocol Independent Multicast (PIM). With its help the group traffic is routed from the video server to numerous clients of the group transfer.
