Extreme BGP-EVPN Network Virtualization and Data Center Interconnect

Published 24 Jul 2018

Extreme BGP-EVPN Network Virtualization builds upon underlying infrastructure platforms, fabrics, and automation to deliver simplified and secure network operations, such as provisioning and maintenance.

Extreme also leverages BGP-EVPN and VXLAN open standards to enable controller-less network virtualization overlays to extend Layer 2 and Layer 3 reachability, ensuring easy and secure scalability.

As enterprises and service providers look to simplify administration and reduce the costs of tunneling services, they are embracing BGP-EVPN VXLAN overlays over traditional legacy VPN services. The Extreme SLX platforms support Layer 2 VPN services with BGP-EVPN VXLAN overlays as well as MPLS VPLS and VLL pseudowire service.

This unique ability to support both legacy and newer tunnel technologies on a single device helps organizations make a smooth transition to BGP-EVPN VXLAN overlays.
