  • Page 5: Spbm Overview

    SPBM overview IEEE 802.1aq Shortest Path Bridging (SPB) enables multipath routing in an Ethernet mesh network by using IS-IS as the control protocol. The technology allows all paths to be active, supports equal cost paths, and provides shortest path forwarding in an Ethernet mesh network. IEEE 802.1aq SPB provides faster convergence, higher link efficiency, and larger Layer 2 topologies than conventional spanning tree protocols such as MSTP.

  • Page 6: Bcb

    Backbone core bridges (BCBs) are core nodes of an SPB network. They are identical to the P devices in an MPLS VPN network. BCBs forward MAC-in-MAC frames based on the B-MAC and B-VLAN. They do not learn customer MAC (C-MAC) addresses. Backbone edge bridges (BEBs) are edge nodes of the SPBM network.

  • Page 7: Lsdb

    LSDB A link state database (LSDB) contains the states of all links in an SPBM network. MAC-in-MAC SPBM encapsulates Ethernet frames into MAC-in-MAC frames by using 802.1ah PBB encapsulation. For more information about PBB, see Layer 2—LAN Switching Configuration Guide. Customer frames are encapsulated in MAC-in-MAC format at edges of the SPBM network before they are forwarded from one customer site to another.

  • Page 8: Spbm Data Packet

    SPBM data packet SPBM data packets use the IEEE 802.1ah MAC-in-MAC frame format, as shown in Figure Figure 2 IEEE 802.1ah-compliant MAC-in-MAC frame format Table 1 IEEE 802.1ah encapsulated frame header fields Field Description B-DA Destination B-MAC that identifies the destination BEB. Source B-MAC.

  • Page 9: Formation And Maintenance Of Isis-spb Adjacencies

    Each node runs SPF to calculate the shortest path from itself to each of the other nodes. If equal-cost paths are available, each node runs ECT to choose the best forwarding path. The nodes populate their respective FDB and FIB tables with the forwarding path. BEBs establish PWs over the SPBM network for transmitting customer traffic.

    Figure 3 MAC-in-MAC unicast traffic over an SPBM network Multicast SPBM floods unknown customer unicast, unknown customer multicast, and broadcast as multicast traffic. SPBM supports the following replication methods for multicast: Head-end replication—Replicates frames at the ingress BEB for frames to enter the SPBM network. •...

  • Page 11

    Figure 4 Head-end replication In tandem replication, the source BEB encapsulates a frame with a B-DA multicast address that uniquely identifies itself and the SPBM service. When this frame arrives at the BCB where the shortest path tree forks, the BCB replicates one frame for each destination BEB, as shown in Figure...

  • Page 12: Spbm Multicast Address

    Figure 5 Tandem replication SPBM multicast address Each SPBM node has a multicast address for each SPB VSI. This multicast address consists of one shortest path source identifier (SPSource ID) and one I-SID. The I-SID identifies an SPB VSI, and the SPSource ID identifies the node as a multicast source in the SPB VSI.

To prevent traffic loss, ECT migration was designed based on the idea of make-before-break.

  • Page 16: Loop Prevention

    Loop prevention SPBM nodes collect topology data independently to calculate forwarding paths. Transient loops might occur during SPT recalculation caused by a network flapping because the latency varies for an LSP to reach the SPBM nodes. SPBM uses the Agreement Protocol (AP) to prevent transient loops. AP introduces a delay for ISIS-SPB to issue forwarding entries to the data plane.

  • Page 17: Configuring Spbm

    Configuring SPBM Configuration restrictions and guidelines When you use SPBM in conjunction with other features, follow the restrictions and guidelines in Table Table 3 SPBM and other features compatibility Feature Restrictions and guidelines You must configure the irf mac-address persistent always command to prevent the IRF bridge MAC address from changing after a master re-election.

    Step Command Remarks The default multiplier is 3. The maximum adjacency hold time spbm timer holding-multiplier Configure the hello multiplier. is 65535 seconds. If this value is value exceeded, the original hello multiplier remains unchanged. Tuning ISIS-SPB LSP timers Change LSP timer settings depending on network stability to increase the network convergence speed and protect CPU from unnecessary route recalculations.

  • Page 30

    NOTE: ISIS-SPB requires acknowledgement for each LSP sent on a point-to-point circuit. ISIS-SPB will retransmit an LSP at 5-second intervals until it receives an acknowledgement for the LSP. This retransmission interval is not user configurable. Configuring the LSP lifetime The LSP lifetime specifies the maximum amount of time for an LSP to be retained in an LSDB. SPBM nodes add a lifetime in each LSP they have advertised.

NOTE: The network is considered unstable if the interval between consecutive SPF calculations is smaller than two times the maximum wait time.
