       Interconnecting Millions Of Endpoints With Segment Routing
             draft-filsfils-spring-large-scale-interconnect-03

Abstract
   This document describes an application of Segment Routing to scale
   the network to support hundreds of thousands of network nodes, and
   tens of millions of physical underlay endpoints. This use-case can be
   applied to the interconnection of massive-scale DC's and/or large
   aggregation networks.  Forwarding tables of midpoint and leaf nodes
   only require a few tens of thousands of entries.
