LT01: Routing Ethernet and the Campus


John Crawford - Juniper

A new approach to L2 networks and spanning of VLANs over campus networks. EVPN allows for ethernet frames to be routed causing the death of spanning tree.

The use of new BGP extensions to allow the ability to place machines anywhere on the network and provide seem-less mobility over an existing L3 network. Also, the ability to migrate services without readdressing and needing L2 intersite or a big bang migration.
