Re: [RRG] Fwd: [Q] draft-farinacci-lisp
I have a question about draft-farinacci-lisp.
If there is more appropriate alias, please forward this e-mail.
My question is..
I think, the draft-farinacci-lisp is NOT a method to resolve IPv4
address depletion problem.
Is my understanding is correct?
Well not directly but if you introduce another namespace, the EID
namespace, the number of locator addresses allocated by ISPs to sites
can be reduced. So the number of locator addresses goes down from the
number of hosts plus router (router interfaces) addresses to the
number of external connection points to the ISP.
If ISPs can addresses back from the their customers, they have an
opportunity to redesign the aggregation boundaries for their blocks.
You will find that the number of EIDs allocated from the new EID
namespace can also be sized for the existing size of a site, where
previously they could have had multiple blocks from different power-
of-2 blocks because of later subsequent requests.
So a locator/ID separation deployment can help clean-up some
to unsubscribe send a message to firstname.lastname@example.org with the
word 'unsubscribe' in a single line as the message text body.
