Cisco says BGP Control Plane for VXLAN works with platforms that are consistent with the IETF draft for EVPN. Several vendors, including Juniper and Alcatel-Lucent, have implemented or have plans to implement EVPN in network virtualization offerings. AT&T and Verizon are co-authors of some of the IETF drafts on this capability.
BGP Control Plane for VXLAN is available now on the Nexus 9300 and 9500 switches. It will be available on the Cisco Nexus 7000 switches and ASR 9000 routers in the second quarter.
