Hyperscale IGP Routing
Data centre networks have been leveraging BGP for underlay routing, largely due to Link State IGP scaling concerns, the ready availability of open source BGP stacks and, in some cases, in order to better control policy. Detailing an innovative approach to hyperscale IGP routing that will have a transformative impact on how scale-out networks are built, from cloud data centres to SP metros and core backbones.
