VxLAN and EVPN Enables Flexible Network
- ● Build a unified virtual fabric network through VXLAN to implement multiple service networks or tenant networks on the same physical network. Converged deployment of the network, the business/tenant network is safely isolated from each other, and truly realizes “one network and multiple uses”. In meeting different businesses/customers.
- ● At the same time of data bearing requirements, it saves network repetitive construction costs and improves network resource utilization efficiency.
