Cisco Sponsor Presentation: LISP -- A Next Generation Routing Architecture: Craig Hill, Distinguished Systems Engineer, Cisco Systems
LISP is a network architecture and set of protocols that utilizes a level of indirection to separate an IP address into two namespaces: Endpoint Identifiers (EIDs), which are assigned to end-hosts, and Routing Locators (RLOCs), which are assigned to devices (primarily routers) that make up the global routing system. This session will provide an overview of how LISP operates, and solves certain problems and offers benefits that exist in routing networks today, including: routing scalability issues, simplified and cost-effective multi-homing, IP address (host) mobility, IPv6 transition simplification, as well as network virtualization capabilities.
