Abstract

   RFC7623 defines how Provider Backbone Bridging (PBB) can be combined
   with Ethernet VPN (EVPN) to deploy ELAN services in very large MPLS
   networks. RFC7623 also describes how Single-Active Multi-homing and
   per-ISID Load-Balancing can be provided to access devices and
   aggregation networks. In order to speed up the network convergence in
   case of failures on Single-Active Multi-Homed Ethernet Segments,
   RFC7623 defines a CMAC-Flush mechanism that works for different
   Ethernet Segment BMAC address allocation models. This document
   complements those CMAC-Flush procedures for cases in which no PBB-
   EVPN Ethernet Segments are defined (ESI 0) and an ISID-based CMAC-
   Flush granularity is desired.
