Q:

What is Video Multicast Rate Optimization ?



A:

From 6.4 the Multicast Rate parameter is renamed to Video Multicast Rate Optimization.This option allows you to define a specific rate for any multicast video, separate from the basic/supported rates.

If you are only looking to raise the broadcast/multicast rate of multicast videos then setting this parameter will help reduce the Airtime. We can also raise the basic/supported rate ,it does have the same effect on mcast video,however it also drops the effective range of the APs 

The Video Multicast Rate Optimization parameter overrides the configuration of BC/MC Rate Optimization parameter for VI-tagged multicast traffic.
