Integrating a Virtual Chassis Fabric into an EVPN-VXLAN Environment


This network configuration example (NCE) describes how to configure EVPN-VXLAN on QFX5100 devices configured as a Virtual Chassis Fabric (VCF) to enable integration with IP fabric architectures. This configuration is also applicable to QFX5100 standalone devices, as well as QFX5100 devices configured as a Virtual Chassis.

The use case covered in this document illustrates how to stretch a Layer 2 network using EVPN-VXLAN on the QFX5100 and the QFX5100 VCF, and how to multihome a server to two separate VCFs acting as EVPN PEs to achieve fabric level redundancy.

The NCE begins by providing a brief overview of VCF and EVPN-VXLAN technologies, and then provides detailed step-by-step configuration steps for enabling EVPN-VXLAN on the QFX5100 VCF.
