Yes, though it's not so much part of the binary protocol than of CQL.
That is, you can query the peers system tables to get basically
what the node knows about the other nodes.

The topology_change events are for when the node join (as in is
bootstrapped) or leave (as in is
decommissioned) the cluster. The DOWN (resp. UP) event is send every time a
node is detected
as down (resp. up) by the cluster. The topology change events pretty much
imply the corresponding
status changes ones (a node that just joined is UP and one that has been
decommissioned should
be considered DOWN).
