As described in the L3 EVPN VXLAN Configuration Guide, it is common practice to use Layer 3 EVPN to provide multi


This feature adds support for offloading BFD Transmit path to hardware (ASIC) for specific types of BFD sessions. This will improve accuracy of transmit timer implementations for BFD (especially with fast timers like 50 ms) and relieve pressure on the main CPU in scenarios of scale.

EOS-4.24.0 adds support for hardware-accelerated sFlow on R3 systems. Without hardware acceleration, all sFlow processing is done in software, which means performance is heavily dependent on the capabilities of the host CPU. Aggressive sampling rates also decrease the amount of processing time available for other EOS applications.

Ethernet VPN (EVPN) is an extension of the BGP protocol introducing a new address family: L2VPN (address family number 25) / EVPN (subsequent address family number 70). It is used to exchange overlay MAC and IP address reachability information between BGP peers using type-2 routes, but additionally,  EVPN supports the exchange of layer 3 IPv4 and IPv6 overlay routes through the extensions described in (type 5 EVPN routes).

EOS 4.24.0F

This feature introduces support for ACL configuration on VXLAN decapsulated packets. The configured ACL rules will


Subinterfaces divide a single ethernet or port channel interface into multiple logical L2 or L3 interfaces based on the 802.1q or 802.1ad tags of incoming traffic. Subinterfaces are commonly used in the L2/L3 boundary device, but they can also be used to isolate traffic with 802.1q tags between L3 peers by assigning subinterfaces to different VRFs or different L2 bridging domains.
