Usually at shows like Interop Las Vegas 2013, attendees wander around the show floor looking at all the new products that are coming out from vendors. Now it is always exciting to see the latest and greatest technology coming out, but very often there is so much information to consume it is difficult to envision how these new products will solve problems that IT organizations are facing today.

So, lets dig into LISP Routing a little more. If you have not done so, I would recommend you read my first post, since I am not going to review the concepts here. In this post, I am going to break things down into three steps: 1) how packets are forwarded (i.e. the data plane operation), 2) how mapping information is propagated (i.e. control plane operation), and 3) how we internetwork with non-LISP locations.
For starters, lets head into the weeds and take a look at the LISP header format. In the last post, I mentioned there is some flexibility in how handles IP addressing. The two examples below show a couple of scenarios: pure IPv4 and a IPv4/IPv6 hybrid:
