EVPN solutions are a robust, scalable and cost-effective way to address federal agencies' growing bandwidth demands while increasing overall network performance.
In 2006, AT&T upgraded more than 3,000 fully managed EVPN sites as part of a widespread USPS-Enterprise Site Upgrade initiative.
AT&T said it will upgrade 1,800 facilities of the United States Postal Service (USPS), a federal agency, with its Enhanced Virtual Private Network (EVPN
) service, increasing the total number of AT&T-managed EVPN
sites to over 5,500.
Cisco announced today that it is furthering its open standards approach to SDN, complementing its open Application Centric Infrastructure (ACI) approach and extending standards-based interoperability for its Nexus 9000 Series switches with support for the IETF standard BGP EVPN protocol for overlay networks.
Nexus 9000 support for the BGP EVPN protocol offers customers a choice of deployment options to achieve operational flexibility and paves the way for integration with third party overlay controllers.
In order to advance this technology further, a scalable and standards-based control plane mechanism such as BGP EVPN is required.
