Video Length: 34 minutes (2 video files) + Diagram and Configuration Files

In this technology video, we will show you how to configure Cisco Easy Virtual Networks (EVN). Cisco EVN provides network virtualization for network routers and switches. It is an alternative or enhancement to VRF-lite. Much of the configuration is the same, except for how you configure the interfaces between the other network devices for extending VRFs.

The topology will involve two Core routers connected together with different isolated client networks attached.

The objective in this video is to implement network virtualization on our Core routers using Cisco EVN. We will focus on two clients and each will have two locations with OSPF routing enabled. One of the locations will connect to one of the core routers. Each client will be configured and assigned to there own VRF instance. The two client networks will be isolated from each other and will not be able to reach the other client domain.

You will also get the full configuration files for the Cisco EVN implementation shown in the videos.
