            Optimized Ingress Replication solution for EVPN
                  draft-ietf-bess-evpn-optimized-ir-01

Abstract

   Network Virtualization Overlay (NVO) networks using EVPN as control
   plane may use ingress replication (IR) or PIM-based trees to convey
   the overlay BUM traffic. PIM provides an efficient solution to avoid
   sending multiple copies of the same packet over the same physical
   link, however it may not always be deployed in the NVO core network.
   IR avoids the dependency on PIM in the NVO network core. While IR
   provides a simple multicast transport, some NVO networks with
   demanding multicast applications require a more efficient solution
   without PIM in the core. This document describes a solution to
   optimize the efficiency of IR in NVO networks.
