Hi Jim,

The route type value is an “scarce” resource, with 11 values currently allocated and more described in drafts. With the success of EVPN in the industry and its use for multiple applications, we wanted to reserve a value that can be used for applications that are specific to a vendor, or even for experimental use. Reserving the last value of an IANA registry for this, is not uncommon in IETF, is it?

Besides that, we want to define a generic key and format for this type 255, so that RRs that don’t understand the specific application can still compare routes and reflect them accordingly.

Thank you.

Could the authors provide further insight on the following..

“   The intend of this new Type is to allow operators and vendors to
   design rapidly new EVPN applications/prototypes and experiment with
   them in deployed networks before standardizing the specific
   application. Software Defined Networks (SDN) are evolving fast and
   the flexibility allowed by this new Route Type will contribute to the
   SDN control plane evolution.”

In general I support the adoption.

Could the authors please clarify how a company that doesn’t have OUI assigned should populate the OUI field and how interdependency between IEEE registration and EVPN implementation would be handled.

Informal references for IEEE OUI handling process would be useful too, perhaps this one -<>
