Virtual Extensible LAN (VXLAN) is a network virtualization technology used in large cloud computing deployments. It encapsulates OSI layer 2 Ethernet frames within layer 3 IP packets using standard destination port 4789. VXLAN endpoints that terminate VXLAN tunnels can be virtual or physical switch ports, are known as VXLAN tunnel endpoints (VTEPs). For more information about VXLAN, see RFC 7348.

  1. I’m guessing that a hardware switch is required for vxlan support as there is no capability for config system vxlan on my 90D ( didn’t see that in the 5.6 release notes )…

  2. On my 91E ( just got 5.6.3 ) vxlan is available… Another fun thing to play with in the lab…
