What's Up With Poor Performance Towards MAC Addresses Starting With 4 or 6?

6 ratings | 586 views
Speakers: Job Snijders, Atrato IP Networks and Jeff Wheeler, Inconcepts. MPLS P routers have trouble dealing with ethernet frames destined for a MAC address starting with a 4 or a 6. Isn't that absolutely fabulous? MAC addresses starting with a 4 or a 6 are not treated as equal citizens! Symptoms you might encounter when dealing with a L2 pseudo-wire or a L3VPN service include re-ordering, congested links or plain dropping of frames. Are you using remote peering? Is your enterprise relying on an out-sourced L3 backbone? Do you extend VLANs from one datacenter to another? YOU MIGHT BE AT RISK. A well-kept secret of router vendors, we illustrate this problem so the common operator can fully understand what is happening, why, and some thoughts on how to mitigate and fix it.
