How is Vtep information distributed in the VXLAN MP-BGP EVPN control plane?
Each VTEP performs local learning to obtain MAC and IP address information from its locally attached hosts and then distributes this information through the MP-BGP EVPN control plane. Hosts attached to remote VTEPs are learned remotely through the MP-BGP control plane.
What is EVPN multihoming?
The EVPN multihoming feature enables you to connect a customer site to two or more PE devices to provide redundant connectivity. A CE device can be multihomed to different PE devices or the same PE device. A redundant PE device can provide network service to the customer site as soon as a failure is detected.
Why use MP BGP?
Multiprotocol BGP allows information about the topology of IP multicast-capable routers to be exchanged separately from the topology of normal IPv4 unicast routers. Thus, it allows a multicast routing topology different from the unicast routing topology.
What is L2VNI and L3VNI?
The L2VNI is the bridge domain. This is for bridging hosts on the same layer-2 segment. Essentially, it is the VxLAN equivalent of a VLAN. An L3VNI can be used to route between L2VNI’s. The ingress or egress VTEP can perform routing.
What is EVPN ESI?
An EVPN LAG is identified using an Ethernet segment identifier (ESI). An ESI is a mandatory attribute that is required to enable EVPN LAG server multihoming. ESI values are encoded as 10-byte integers and are used to identify a multihomed segment.
What is EVPN Vpws?
The EVPN-VPWS is a BGP control plane solution for point-to-point services. It implements the signaling and encapsulation techniques for establishing an EVPN instance between a pair of PEs. It has the ability to forward traffic from one network to another without MAC lookup.
What is MP-BGP MPLS?
A Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) virtual private network (VPN) consists of a set of sites that are interconnected by means of an MPLS provider core network. At each site, there are one or more customer edge (CE) devices, which attach to one or more provider edge (PE) devices.
Why do we use MP-BGP?
Multiprotocol BGP (MP-BGP) is an extension to BGP that enables BGP to carry routing information for multiple network layers and address families. MP-BGP can carry the unicast routes used for multicast routing separately from the routes used for unicast IP forwarding.
Why VXLAN is used?
VXLAN is an encapsulation protocol that provides data center connectivity using tunneling to stretch Layer 2 connections over an underlying Layer 3 network. In data centers, VXLAN is the most commonly used protocol to create overlay networks that sit on top of the physical network, enabling the use of virtual networks.
What is VXLAN in Nexus?
VXLAN is a solution to support a flexible, large-scale multitenant environment over a shared common physical infrastructure. The transport protocol over the physical data center network is IP plus UDP.
What is VXLAN and Vtep?
Each Layer 2 subnet is uniquely identified by a VXLAN network identifier (VNI) that segments traffic. The entity that performs the encapsulation and decapsulation of packets is called a VXLAN tunnel endpoint (VTEP).
What is an Ethernet segment?
Ethernet. According to the defining IEEE 802.3 standards for Ethernet, a network segment is an electrical connection between networked devices using a shared medium. In the original 10BASE5 and 10BASE2 Ethernet varieties, a segment would therefore correspond to a single coax cable and all devices tapped into it.
