Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP) is routing architecture that provides new semantics for IP addressing. The current IP routing and addressing architecture uses a single numbering space, the IP address, to express two pieces of information:
- Device identity
- The way the device attaches to the network
The LISP routing architecture design separates the device identity, or endpoint identifier (EID), from its location, or routing locator (RLOC), into two different numbering spaces. Splitting EID and RLOC functions yields several advantages.
Simplify Routing Operations
LISP enables enterprises and service providers to:
- Simplify multihomed routing
- Facilitate scalable any-to-any WAN connectivity
- Support data center virtual machine mobility
In this course you will learn and understand LISP technology, configuration and verification.
