39:47 EVPN Fundamentals

We'll start with a very brief description of what EVPN does and how it all started, and explore EVPN functionality, from basic bridging to MAC mobility, proxy ARP, integrated routing and bridging, and EVPN-based MLAG.

33:08 EVPN in the Data Centers

In this section Dinesh Dutt describes how to use EVPN with VXLAN in a data center environment, and how to keep your deployment as simple as possible.

1:02:36 Bridging with EVPN

EVPN started as a L2VPN technology, but even there its creators tried to solve a plethora of problems including:

  • Dual-attached endpoints
  • Ingress replication versus IP multicast or MPLS P2MP flooding
  • ARP suppression

1:27:33 Routing with EVPN

Integrated routing and bridging (IRB) is the most complex part of EVPN. You could choose between centralized or distributed routing, and between asymmetrical (routing on ingress) or symmetrical (routing on ingress and egress) routing.

17:19 EVPN in Large Data Centers

When deploying EVPN in large data center fabrics, it makes sense to split the EVPN fabric into smaller layer-2 forwarding domains connected to the central layer-3 backbone.

1:35:17 EVPN Multihoming versus MLAG

This section describes the differences between more traditional MLAG solutions and EVPN Multihoming (connecting the same customer to multiple PE devices), illustrating the differences using Cisco's new approach to MLAG: vPC Fabric Peering.
