Hi all,

I'd like to inform you that our experimental work on bier-frr is now
published in IEEE Access:

It documents the implementation and evaluation of a bier prototype
including (tunnel-based) bier-frr on the P4-programmable ASIC Tofino.
The work is based on the draft
https://tools.ietf.org/html/draft-merling-bier-frr-00 which we
presented two years ago.

Some time ago, we published a comparison between tunnel-based
bier-frr (leverages frr of the underlay) and "native frr on the bier layer":
