As a sprint customer, you can start to turn on pim
on your igp interfaces, set your routes for nlri unicast multicast
as well as your bgp sessions.
here's a pointer to sprint webpage:
Verio customers can contact me for the support/request address
(want to keep it out of the list archives to reduce spam and
also incase it changes).
This is also not a endorsement of Multicast Technologies but
they have some info here: http://www.multicasttech.com/faq/
There are a lot of other resources out there. I suggest
doing a few searches in google/yahoo and you can find some.
