The IESG has received a request from the BGP Enabled ServiceS WG (bess) to
consider the following document: - 'A Network Virtualization Overlay Solution
using EVPN'
  <draft-ietf-bess-evpn-overlay-10.txt> as Proposed Standard

The IESG plans to make a decision in the next few weeks, and solicits final
comments on this action. Please send substantive comments to the
ietf@ietf.org mailing lists by 2017-12-22. Exceptionally, comments may be
sent to iesg@ietf.org instead. In either case, please retain the beginning of
the Subject line to allow automated sorting.


   This document specifies how Ethernet VPN (EVPN) can be used as a
   Network Virtualization Overlay (NVO) solution and explores the
   various tunnel encapsulation options over IP  and their impact on the
   EVPN control-plane and procedures. In particular, the following
   encapsulation options are analyzed: VXLAN, NVGRE, and MPLS over GRE.
   This specification is also applicable to GENEVE encapsulation;
   however, some incremental work is required which will be covered in a
   separate document. This document also specifies new multi-homing
   procedures for split-horizon filtering and mass-withdraw. It also
   specifies EVPN route constructions for VxLAN/NvGRE encapsulations and
   ASBR procedures for multi-homing NV Edge devices.
