Virtual Routing Instance (VRF-Lite)

SUMMARY Read this topic to understand the implementation of virtual routing instances in JCNR.

Virtual routing instances allow administrators to divide a the cloud-native router into multiple independent virtual routers, each with its own routing table. Splitting a device into many virtual routing instances isolates traffic traveling across the network without requiring multiple devices to segment the network. You can use virtual routing instances to isolate customer traffic on your network and to bind customer-specific instances to customer-owned interfaces. Virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) is often used in conjunction with Layer 3 subinterfaces, allowing traffic on a single physical interface to be differentiated and associated with multiple virtual routers. Each logical Layer 3 subinterface can belong to only one routing instance. Review the Virtual Router Instances topic for more information.
