This talk explains the installation and configuration of frr routing protocol suite for Linux. FRR is an implementation of eVPN MP-VPN using VxLAN.

This talk explains the basic configuration of vxlan gateway using debian linux with frr to achive eVPN MP-BGP. Linux itself is used to specify the VxLAN interfaces via iproute2, while FRR is used to achive eVPN with multi-protocol BGP. MP-BGP is needet to dynamicaly anounce L2 and L3 route across the VxLAN fabric.
