Is the 1544F capable of IGMP snooping?

I need to enable IGMP snooping on several switches within my network.  I've turned on IGMP snooping on the 1535P but I cannot find any commands or references for IGMP snooping on the 1544F.

I was pretty surprised to find some of Adtran's mid-level switches like the 1544F have no support at all for multicast or IP-directed broadcasts, the two options needed to support a client's application.  I've seen many entry level smart switches with at least some minimal IGMP functionality.  Hopefully they're going to address this in future releases, but after all this time I'm not holding my breath.

I agree, the 1531p (a cheap $300 switch) has IGMP snooping, yet the 1544F does not? Is this possible to add in a firmware update?

Doubtless it is possible, since I don't believe there are any hardware limitations to it, however I don't see them making additions on an older model switch.
