Ethernet VPN (EVPN) - Overlay Networks for Ethernet Services
Greg Hankins, Alcatel-Lucent
In this presentation we'll take a look at Ethernet VPN (EVPN), an overlay network technology for providing Ethernet services. EVPN offers an alternative to VPLS that integrates both Layer 2 and Layer 3 services, and can run over simple IP networks with ECMP for resiliency and load balancing. EVPN is an interesting new technology for network operators providing a Layer 2 infrastructure over multiple sites or delivering integrated Layer 2/Layer 3 services, and data center operators providing cloud services.
