Summary

This is the only complete guide and deployment reference for building flexible data center network fabrics with VXLAN and BGP-EVPN technologies. Authored by world-renowned Cisco experts and CiscoLive speakers, it addresses everything from standards and protocols to functions, configuration, operations, management, and troubleshooting.

 

Cisco's experts begin by assessing the challenges now driving radical change in the data center. They show how data center fabrics are evolving, and present a detailed discussion of Cisco's advanced Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI). Next, they introduce key switch roles, essential data center network fabric terminology, and key concepts such as network attributes, control planes, and data plane encapsulation.

 

Building on this foundation, they drill down into crucial details, including overlay forwarding semantics, multi-tenancy, and network fabric interconnection techniques. You'll find detailed packet flows for forwarding IPv4 and IPv6 traffic, including routing and bridging scenarios; as well as optimizations built atop VXLAN and BGP-EVPN to maximize efficiency.

 

The authors conclude with a full section on fabric management, addressing Power-On Auto Provisioning (POAP) and other opportunities to simplify, automate, and orchestrate advanced data center networks.
