As mentioned previously, this adjacency characteristic is identical to that used in MPLS VPNs. Enterprise customers can maintain their existing multicast configurations, such as PIM SM/PIM DM and any RP discovery mechanisms, and they can transition to an mVPN service by using multicast domains without configuration changes.
