This document describes the procedures for interconnecting two or more Network Virtualization Overlays (NVOs) with EVPN via NVO over IP-only network. The solution interconnects Ethernet VPN network by using NVO with Ethernet VPN (EVPN) to facilitate the interconnect in a scalable fashion. The motivation is to support extension of Layer-2 and Layer-3, Unicast & Multicast, VPNs without having to rely on typical Data Center Interconnect (DCI) technologies like MPLS/VPLS. The requirements for the interconnect are similar to the ones specified in [RFC7209], "Requirements for Ethernet VPN (EVPN)". In particular, this document describes the difference of the Gateways (GWs) procedure and combined functionality from [RFC9014], "Interconnect Solution for Ethernet VPN (EVPN) Overlay Networks" and and [EVPN-IPVPN], "EVPN Interworking with IPVPN", which this solution is interoperable to. This document updates and replaces all previous version of Multi-site EVPN based VXLAN using Border Gateways (draft- sharma-multi-site-evpn).
