Abstract

   Ethernet VPN (EVPN) provides different functional modes in the area
   of Service Interface, Integrated Route and Bridge (IRB) and IRB Core
   connectivity. This document specifies how the different EVPN
   functional modes and types can interoperate with each other. This
   document doesn't aim to redefine the existing functional modes but
   extend them for interoperability.
