The Locator/ID separation protocol (LISP) implements a "level of indirection" that enables a new IP routing architecture by separating IP addresses into two namespaces: Endpoint Identifiers (EIDs), which are assigned to end-hosts, and Routing Locators (RLOCs), which are assigned to devices (primarily routers) making up the global routing system. By separating EIDs and RLOCs to create an overlay network, LISP inherently enables numerous benefits within a single protocol, including: Low OpEx multihoming with ingress traffic engineering; address family independence for efficient IPv4 and IPv6 support; high-scale Virtualization/Multi-tenancy support; and Data Center/Cloud Host Mobility support, including session persistence across mobility events.
The first part of the webinar provides a brief LISP progress report including IETF LISP standardization initiatives as well as Cisco LISP initiatives. We'll then review, in detail, the broad LISP use-cases, and focuses on specific production deployment examples highlighting each use-case.
