This solution allows delivery of IPv6 multicast traffic in an IP-VRF using an IPv4 multicast in the underlay network. The protocol used to build multicast trees in the underlay network is PIM Sparse Mode.

PIM External Gateways (PEGs) allow an EVPN overlay multicast network to interface with an external PIM domain. They can be used to interconnect two data centers using an external PIM domain in between them.
