[RFC7364] "Problem Statement: Overlays for Network Virtualization" discusses the needs for network virtualization using overlay networks in highly virtualized data centers. The problem statement outlines a need for control protocols to facilitate running these overlay networks. This document outlines the high level requirements to be fulfilled by the control protocols related to building and managing the mapping tables and other state information used by the Network Virtualization Edge to transmit encapsulated packets across the underlying network.
