EVPN E-LAN on PTX10k Platforms

By Ramdas Machat posted 29 days ago

  

We validate EVPN E-LAN on Express4-based platforms playing the role of PE. In this article, we will describe the various approaches, the configurations and the instance scaling.

Introduction

In this first article, we introduced the key concepts of EVPN, focusing on the E-LINE/VPWS aspects. Let's now cover in details EVPN E-LAN service implementation on the PTX with Junos EVO and 400GE platforms powered by Express 4 ASIC.

Figure 1 is a reference topology and Figure 2 further down gives more details on the configuration and the different cases covered including Single homed, Multi homed and Scaling of the test scenario on a live topology with the configuration and operational status for each case.

Test Topology

Below topology was used for testing different EVPN VPWS scenarios. The PTX platforms here are the DUT playing role of PEs and the CEs used in the topology are MX960 but there is a choice of using many other platforms like ACX/ MX fixed chassis/QFX and all of these are options for to test or deploy EVPN E-LAN in their respective network.

Underlay and Customer Equipment (CE) Configuration

All PE’s are configured using the OSPF and MPLS for underlay. The PEs are configured with fully meshed BGP session with “family evpn signalling” enabled to exchange the EVPN routes among each other. Sample configuration is covered as part of Underlay Configuration – MPLS towards the end of the document for reference. Also the CE configuration used during the testing is also covered towards the end for reference.

ESI-LAG vs MC-LAG

ESI-LAG supports all the feature that legacy MC-LAG support including the Active/ Active or Active/ Standby modes. With ESI-LAG we have the following advantages.

  • More than 2 PEs is supported
  • No requirement for ICL (inter chassis link)
  • Integrated L3 Gateway support
  • Standardized, interoperable inter-chassis protocol
  • Everything handled using the BGP signalling

ESI Configuration

Ethernet Segment Identifier (ESI) is used to uniquely identify multi-homed Ethernet segments. Information about ESI in EVPN messages is encoded in NRLI itself, and distributed via ES-Import RT communities (RFC 7432, Section 7.6) in Type 4 messages as well, e.g.:

4:11.11.11.11:0::111111111111111111:11.11.11.11/296 ES (1 entry, 1 announced) <===== encoded ESI: Type 0, Value: 11:11:11:11:11:11:00:00:00

Advertise: 00000003
Path 4:11.11.11.11:0::111111111111111111:11.11.11.11

These ES-Import RTs are generated from ESI, e.g.:

set interfaces ae0 esi 00:11:11:11:11:11:11:11:11:11

ESI has 10 bytes, ES-Import Route Target (RT) has space for 6 bytes of payload (useful info). Therefore, the first 6 most significant bytes from ESI payload are taken to generate ES-Import RT.

The first byte represents ESI Type (Type 0: "manually configured"), therefore in the above example 11:11:11:11:11:11 are taken from configured ESI and used to populate advertised ES-Import RT. ES-Import RT enables all the PEs connected to the same multi-homed site to import the Ethernet Segment (Type 4) routes.

Now, if we have the following ESIs configured on some interfaces, the ES-Import RT will be 00:00:00:11:11:11 with the ESI configured with 00:00:00:00:11:11:11:11:11:11 on PE1 and PE2 (in figure 2).

See below how to configure it.

set interfaces ae0 esi 00:00:00:00:11:11:11:11:11:11

Here is the output taken from the PE1 where the above is configured.

4:11.11.11.11:0::111111111111:11.11.11.11/296 ES (1 entry, 1 announced)

Path 4:11.11.11.11:0::111111111111:11.11.11.11

It is the same for all ESIs. All PEs will import these Type 4 routes, but later, based on the actual ESI encoded as part of NRLI in these Type 4 routes, and the actual ESI configured on some local interface, if there is no match, the route will not be used. From EVPN machinery perspective, it is OK, but not optimal. The most optimal (i.e. for control plane optimization), is to differentiate ESIs in the first 6 useful bytes (rather than use the last 3 bytes), so that generated ES-Import RT prevents these routes from even being imported on PEs that don’t need them.

EVPN E-LAN

EVPN-LAN is a framework for delivering multipoint-to-multipoint VPN service with the EVPN signalling mechanisms. E-LAN service allows service providers to offer services that manage the l2 learning very efficiently. In a multihoming scenario, the BUM is handled by the PE-DF, and the learned information is redistributed to other PEs in the network. The multihomed CE connects a customer site to two or more PE devices providing redundant services.

From a MEF standard perspective, there are two different services for EVPN-E-LAN

  • EP-LAN (Ethernet Private LAN): offers a multipoint-to-multipoint ethernet virtual connection (EVC) between a dedicated UNI (User Network Interface). It is a Port-based service.
  • EP-VLAN (Ethernet Virtual Private LAN): offers VLAN-based service multiplexing, multiple EVCs are paired per UNI.

EVPN E-LAN Instance types

Three types of instances supported across Juniper platforms for EVPN E-LAN.

  • "MAC-VRF" instances: used to provision all 3 services (vlan-based, vlan-bundle, vlan-aware-bundle) associated with a single EVI.
  • "EVPN" instances: used to provision vlan-based, vlan-bundle services for an EVI.
  • "Virtual-Switch" instances: used to provision vlan-aware-bundle services for an EVI.

PTX based on Express4 running JUNOS EVO supports only MAC-VRF based instances. The table below lists different MPLS or VXLAN EVIs support for Juniper platforms including MX, ACX(Junos, EVO), and PTX (Junos, EVO). This content guides the user/operator to identify which platforms can interop with PTX.

EVPN E-LAN Services behaviour with the SP or EP Style of configuration

Service Provider (SP) style and Enterprise (EP) are different styles of configuring interfaces using Juniper devices. Table 4, below highlights the supported options available for configuring VLAN-id or vlan-id-list.

Table 4: Configuration SP vs EP Style - MAC-VRF

EVPN MAC-VRF

MAC-VRF unifies EVPN E-LAN services configuration across all Juniper platforms for EVPN-MPLS or EVPN-VXLAN. With this instance, the CLI knob “service-type” drives the requirements of the service under a single umbrella for the E-LAN services. These are driven by the service provider requirements, RFC compliance, and design choices.

MAC-VRF is not just about simplicity, it is RFC compliant and easier to interop. Also, with “instance-type mac-vrf”, the bridge domains will by default extended into EVPN, no need to configure an “extended-vlan-list”. Both Enterprise (EP) style and Service Provider (SP) style interfaces are supported in mac-vrf instance.

Listed below are the 3 different service types in MAC-VRF instance.

VLAN-based MAC-VRF Instance

VLAN-based service is a one-to-one mapping of the VLAN ID with the EVPN Instance (EVI). The MAC-VRF EVI corresponds one VLAN to a single flooding domain and single MAC learning domain to handle all the BUM and Unicast traffic. In certain cases, VLANs on two ends of the EVPN network may be Asymmetric and VLAN translation is required. There are different models of translation that can be used as listed below.

Figure 2: EVPN E-LAN VLAN-based

Figure 2: EVPN E-LAN VLAN-based

Table 5, below shows what VLAN translation actually means and how we can identify the VLAN ID from the routes advertised/learnt from other PEs.

Options Description Route Example

 No VLAN Translation,
 Ethernet tag = 0

This is a strict compliance of RFC7432 Section 6.1. The T2 route consists of Ethernet TAG=0  2:22.22.22.22:1::0::00:00:aa:00:00:00/304 MAC/IP
 No VLAN Translation,
 Ethernet-tag = non zero
This is a partial compliance of RFC7432 Section 6.1. The T2 route consists of Ethernet TAG=non zero. In this case the VLANS facing Access & Core are symmetric.  2:22.22.22.22:1::1::00:00:aa:00:00:00/304 MAC/IP
 VLAN Translation,
 Ethernet-tag = non zero
This is a partial compliance of RFC7432 Section 6.1. The T2 route consists of Ethernet TAG=non zero. In this case the VLANS facing Access & Core are Asymmetric. And there needs to be a vlan Translation that needs to be done.  2:22.22.22.22:1::1::00:00:aa:00:00:00/304 MAC/IP

Table 5: VLAN-BASED Service translation options

VLAN-BUNDLE

MAC-VRF instance with service-type “VLAN-bundle” offers service with multiple bridge-domain/VLANs under it. The MAC-VRF EVPN Instance (EVI) corresponds one VLAN to a bridge table and the bridge domain created handles all the BUM and Unicast traffic within the Bridge domain. RFC7432 Section 6.2 covers this in detail.

Figure 4: EVPN E-LAN VLAN-BUNDLE

VLAN-bundle service, while maintaining a single MAC learning domain (single MAC table, single bridge domain), can be applied to multiple broadcast domains (multiple VLANs). This implies that in VLAN-bundle service MAC addresses must be unique across VLANs and there cannot be MAC overlap between VLANs. VLAN Bundle gives an option to the user to consolidate many VLANs of similar interest to be part of a single BD.

Figure 5: EVPN E-LAN VLAN-BUNDLE

VLAN-AWARE-BUNDLE

MAC-VRF instance with service-type “VLAN-aware” offers service with multiple bridge-domain/VLANs under it. This is similar to the “virtual-switch” routing instance in other platforms like MX/ACX.

Figure 6: EVPN E-LAN VLAN-AWARE

VLAN Aware bundle allows the consolidation of multiple broadcast domains in a single EVI. Each of the EVI can have various Bridge Domains (BD) and each VLAN can be associated with a separate BD. Thus, the MAC learning domains correspond to various bridge domains.

Figure 7: EVPN E-LAN VLAN-AWARE

EVPN vs MAC-VRF (Normalization)

Table 6 below provides guidelines on the interoperability between different Juniper platforms implementing VLAN-BASED service when to use instance-type EVPN or MAC-VRF.

EVPN MAC-VRF
 ethernet-tag-id  Tagged
 set “vlan-id none”
 0
 normalization  Default behaviour  With CLI under protocol evpn
 “set normalization”
 no normalization  Using CLI config
 “set vlan-id none”
 “set no-normalization”
 Default Behaviour

Table 6: Interop Configuration guidelines

With MAC-VRF, by default, control plane advertised routes with ethernet-tag-id = 0 for VLAN-based service. To interop with other Juniper platforms (Junos based), an evpn instance must be configured with “vlan-id none” and “protocol evpn no-normalization” for routing instance with “instance-type evpn”.

At the same time routing-instance on other platforms configured using “instance-type evpn” are configured in default mode, i.e., without “vlan-id none” and “protocol evpn no-normalization” then the MAC-VRF instance needs to be configuring with “normalize” tag.

EVPN E-LAN Test Scenarios

EVPN E-LAN VLAN-BASED

All four PEs in the topology present in Figure 2 are BGP-EVPN PE and have the EVPN MAC-VRF instance setup. These PEs discover each other in the network, establish the EVPN sessions and exchange the EVPN routes.

EVPN E-LAN VLAN-BUNDLE

All four PEs in the topology are BGP-EVPN PE and have the EVPN MAC-VRF instance setup. These PEs discover each other in the network, establish the EVPN sessions and exchange EVPN routes. The configuration below covers the EVPN Multihomed PEs scenario in Active-Active mode.

EVPN E-LAN (VLAN-Bundle) SP Style vlan-id

Configuration - SP Style Multiple VLANs mapping to BD in A/A mode:

In Active/Active, we need to bundle the UNI links from CE node to the Multi-homed PE so that the traffic is load balanced. Here, we have 2 VLAN-ids part of the same Ethernet Virtual Instance (EVI). However, in the multi-homed scenario, the Ethernet Segment Identifier (ESI) has to be defined individually for each IFLs. Otherwise, it throws an error “Multiple interfaces of same ESI can not be included in the routing instance evpn-vlan-bundle

For a single/active scenario, the common ESI can be defined for both vlan-id in an EVI.

EVPN E-LAN (VLAN-Bundle) SP Style vlan-id-list

Configuration - SP Style vlan-id-list in A/A mode

In Active/Active, we need to bundle the UNI links from CE node to the Multi-homed PE so that the traffic is load balanced. Here, we have VLAN-ID-LIST associated with the ae0.100 IFL which is attached to the Bridge Domain (BD) bd2 in Ethernet Virtual Instance (EVI). With just one IFL attached to bd2 in EVI, the ESI can be defined at IFD or IFL level.

For a single/active scenario, the common ESI can be defined for both vlan-id in an EVI.

EVPN E-LAN VLAN-AWARE-BUNDLE

All four PEs in the topology are BGP-EVPN PE and have the EVPN MAC-VRF instance setup. These PEs discover each other in the network, establish the EVPN sessions and exchange EVPN routes.

The current configuration is with Active-Active for the Multihomed PEs.

EVPN E-LAN (VLAN-Aware) SP Style vlan-id

Configuration - SP Style One to One mapping of BD to VLAN in A/A mode:

In Active/Active we need to bundle the UNI links from CE node to the Multihomed PE, so that the traffic is load balanced.
