Outgoing Interface Table (OIF Table)
Multicast does not use standard destination based routing and instead relies on group membership protocols such as IGMP to help build the multicast distribution tree. Interfaces that have joined the multicast group are added to the OIF table in relation to the respective multicast group. Once added to the table, the network element will create a copy of each multicast packet for the joined multicast group and forward out the requesting interface.
