Broadcast

IPv4 broadcast addresses are IP address that can target all systems on a subnet or network instead of single hosts. In other words, a broadcast message goes to everyone on the network or to a specific network segment. Answer A, multicast, sends data to an entire identified group of network users. Answer B, unicast, sends data to a specific system. Answer D is incorrect because anycast is not a valid networking term.
