Ethernet VPN (EVPN) provides different functional modes in the area of Service Interface, Integrated Route and Bridge (IRB) and IRB Core connectivity. This document specifies how the different EVPN functional modes and types can interoperate with each other. This document doesn't aim to redefine the existing functional modes but extend them for interoperability.
