A Brief Explanation of EVPN-VXLAN

As enterprise networks become more complicated, organizations need a better way to control and segregate network traffic. Traditionally, networks could be segmented through VLANs easily enough. With businesses spreading more geographical locations and things like mobile connectivity and IoT becoming more prevalent in the business environment, VLANs may not be a totally viable solution anymore.

As such, businesses can use EVPN and VXLAN together to better meet the new requirements for network segmentation. Both EVPN and VXLAN together refer to a network fabric that extends layer 2 connectivity as a network overlay for a physical network. EVPN itself is used as an overlay control plane that provides virtual connectivity between layer 2 and 3 domains. VXLAN is a network virtualization protocol that expands the layer 2 address space. By using both together, businesses can create flexible, scalable, and more resilient networks both locally and over wide, geographic areas.
