Brian Field, Comcast

Abstract: Service providers are deploying more off-the-shelf hardware to host virtual machines. Applications which run on those machines can make use of topological information to optimize delivery of traffic. Also the network's awareness of the virtual machines can aid in understanding the service topology and redundancy.
This talk discusses a possible method using LLDP (Link-Layer Discovery Protocol) to discover edge capabilities and BGP Link-State to distribute these through the network.
