Building an IP-EVPN fabric with Cumulus Linux

Speaker: Attilla de Groot


Cumulus Linux is a NOS that runs on 50+ different hardware platforms used in datacenters. EVPN is a new RFC that allows to build a L2 overlay network with BGP as the control plane. This makes it possible to offer “classic” L2 services on a scalable IP fabric. This presentation will show how to deploy EVPN-VxLAN in a datacenter network with Ansible as a DevOps tool.


Attilla has spent the last 15 years at the cutting edge of networking, having spent time with KPN, Amsterdam Internet Exchange and HP, with exposure to technology from Cisco, HP, Juniper and Huawei. He now works for Cumulus Networks, the creators of open networking, where he is able to continue his interest in open architecture design.
