Ethernet VPN (EVPN) is a technology for carrying layer 2 Ethernet traffic as a virtual private network using wide area network protocols. EVPN technologies include Ethernet over MPLS and Ethernet over VXLAN.[1][2]

EVPNs are covered by a number of Internet RFCs, including:

  • RFC 7209 "Requirements for Ethernet VPN (EVPN)",
  • RFC 7432 "BGP MPLS-Based Ethernet VPN",
  • RFC 8365 "A Network Virtualization Overlay Solution Using Ethernet VPN (EVPN)"
