NANOG Meeting Presentation Abstract

Shortest Path Bridging - IEEE 802.1aq
Meeting: NANOG49
Date / Time: 2010-06-15 3:00pm - 3:30pm
Room: Grand
Presenters: Speakers:
Peter Ashwood-Smith, Huawei Technologies Canada.
Abstract: 802.1aq Shortest Path Bridging is being standardized by the IEEE as an evolution of the various spanning tree protocols. 802.1aq allows for true shortest path routing, multiple equal cost paths, much larger layer 2 topologies, faster convergence, vastly improved use of the mesh topology, single point provisioning for logical connectivity membership (E-LINE/E-LAN/E-TREE etc), abstraction of attached device MAC addresses from the transit devices, head end and/or transit multicast replication all while supporting the full suit of 802.1 OA&M. This tutorial will give an overview of 802.1aq, how it works, some discussion of where it applies and then will conclude with a peek at a 30+ node network consisting of several real switches and an emulator. Using some generic graphical tools and a CLI we will explore the behavior visually and also textually in a bit of detail.
