Administratively Scoped Addresses

Also known as limited-scope addresses, administratively scoped addresses fall within the range of 239l0l0l0/8l RFC 2365 sets these addresses aside to be used within a company or organization. Private companies, campuses, or other networks can use these addresses to run multicast applications that will not be forwarded outside their autonomous system.

Service provkier route rs are typically configured to filter this type of multicast traffic to be sure applications do not 7low outside the appropriate multicast domain. Large organizations might also sepahate these into scopes (the multicast theory of subnetting) to separate them across smaller multicast domains.
