This document proposes a proactive, in-band network OAM mechanism to detect loss of continuity and miss-connection faults that affect unicast and multi-destination paths, used by Broadcast, unknown Unicast and Multicast traffic, in an EVPN network. The mechanisms proposed in the draft use the principles of the widely adopted Bidirectional Forwarding Detection protocol.
