Technical Summary This document specifies how Ethernet VPN (EVPN) can be used as a Network Virtualization Overlay (NVO) solution and explores the various tunnel encapsulation options over IP and their impact on the EVPN control-plane and procedures. In particular, the following encapsulation options are analyzed: VXLAN, NVGRE, and MPLS over GRE. GENEVE is considered in a separate document (draft-boutros-bess-evpn-geneve). Working Group Summary There was very large support for adopting this work. So much so that the list of authors (6) reflects the people who made the most significant contributions, while others (10 more) are listed as Contributors. Document Quality This specification is of very good technical quality and are known to have multiple interoperable specifications. Personnel Thomas Morin is the Document Shepherd. Alvaro Retana is the Responsible Area Director.
