Deploy EVPN Seamlessly

Ethernet VPN (EVPN) has been gaining support among companies looking to solve problems in the design of data center networks. This mature technology has been part of service provider networks for years, but network architects and operators have to contend with complex concepts and terminology in the EVPN standards document. In this e-book, cut through the fog and learn how you can deploy this technology seamlessly in your data center.

By guiding you through EVPN concepts and practicalities, author Dinesh Dutt describes why this technology is the piece you need to successfully adopt virtual extensible LAN (VXLAN) in your Clos-based network. You'll discover why EVPN can be simpler to use in data centers than in service provider networks.
