As an operator, we do hope to reduce the number of solutions, so that we do not need to deploy multiple solutions. I hope the WG can standard one single solution.
Also, since the CSID has been implemented by most vendors, I will suggest to adopt CSID at the beginning.

Subject: Re: [spring] SRv6 compression

For all operators around the world looking at deployment of SRv6 compression and being in a  holding pattern waiting for SRv6 compression to be standardized by the IETF.

Given the ubiquitous importance of SRV6 compression and MSD issues with long strict SR-TE explicit route object,  it is critical for interoperability for all steering use cases that exist today: enterprise, internet, private, access network - 5G wireless xHaul, mobile core, wireline, MBB, FBB.

We as a WG need a single standardized solution for SRv6 compression for interoperability to work and all vendors marching to the same sheet of music.

I agree that the NVO3 - GENEVE is a solid precedence path forward to take and for Spring WG to come to consensus and standardize on one solution and progress the other solutions as informational if implementations already exist.

Kind Regards

I agree with Wim’s statement that the precedent in NVO3 *could* apply here too: pick one solution as Standard’s track RFC, and once it is done, the others might be documented as Informational RFCs if they have implementations.

That would help the industry to move forward.

Given the design team accomplished the work on providing requirements and analysis to compress an SRv6 SID list, I would recommend we pick 1 solution similar to what was done in NVO3 (when we discussed GENEVE, GUE, GPE, etc) given this has to be implemented in HW..

I hope we can conclude on this asap and move forward on this topic
