There are no new hardware features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(4)XB5.

New Software Features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(4)XB5

This section describes the following new and changed software features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(4)XB5.

LISP ALT Summary Route

LISP PETR Load Sharing

LISP Remote RLOC Probe

LISP RLOC Auto-Discovery

LISP Route-Import

LISP ALT Summary Route

The LISP ALT Summary Route feature enables an ALT-connected device to summarize and announce an aggregate prefix into the LISP ALT. This summary route can be announced in lieu of more-specifics to improve ALT scalability, and to simplify Map-Request handling.

LISP PETR Load Sharing

The LISP PETR Load Sharing feature adds priority and weight options to configured PETRs for configurable load sharing.

LISP Remote RLOC Probe

The LISP Remote RLOC Probe feature improves convergence times for LISP encapsulations by immediately sending triggered probes to remote RLOCs that undergo next-hop changes.

LISP RLOC Auto-Discovery

The LISP RLOC Auto-Discovery feature provides the ability to configure a LISP site with multiple xTRs to use dynamic provisioning for their RLOC interfaces (locators).

LISP Route-Import

The LISP Route-Import feature enables dynamic proxying of EID-space by a Proxy-ITR.

New Hardware Features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(4)XB4

There are no new hardware features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(4)XB4.

New Software Features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(4)XB4

This section describes the following new and changed software features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(4)XB4.

LISP Instance ID Support

The LISP Instance ID Support feature includes the following support:

Multi-tenancy support on xTR: Ability to associate LISP instance IDs with virtual routing and forwarding (VRF) tables running on an xTR. This allows for an xTR that is connected to the multiple networks to use LISP instance IDs to provide segmentation of traffic for the EID prefixes that they support. (When Multi-tenancy is configured on an xTR, it must also be configured on the Map-Server. Note that multi-tenancy support for the Map-Server was provided in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)XB3.)

ALT-less Proxy Ingress Tunnel Route support: Ability to configure LISP PITR functionality without requiring the PITR to be ALT-connected for EID-to-RLOC mapping resolution. This results in a simpler configuration of the PITR, and allows the PITR to use standard Map-resolution mechanisms for EID-to-RLOC mapping resolution instead of the ALT.

New Hardware Features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)XB3

There are no new hardware features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)XB3.

New Software Features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)XB3

This section describes the following new and changed software features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)XB3.

LISP Instance ID Support

The LISP Instance ID Support feature includes the following support:

Single-tenancy support on xTR: Ability to associate an instance ID to a single LISP instance running on an xTR. This allows for xTRs that are connected to the same network to use different LISP instances resulting in segmentation of the EID prefixes that they support.

Multi-tenancy support on MS/MR: Ability for an MS/MR to maintain segmentation of the EID prefixes between instance IDs when providing mapping services to xTRs that are running with different LISP instance IDs.

New Hardware Features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)XB2

There are no new hardware features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)XB2.

New Software Features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)XB2

This section describes the following new and changed software features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)XB2.

Support for LISP Map Server and Map Resolver Functionality

Map Resolver

A LISP Map-Resolver is deployed as a LISP infrastructure component. A Map-Resolver receives LISP Encapsulated Control Messages (ECM) containing Map-Requests from LISP ITRs directly over the underlying locator-based network. The Map-Resolver decapsulates these messages and forwards them on the LISP-ALT topology, where they are then delivered either to an ETR that is directly connected to the LISP-ALT and that is authoritative for the EID being queried by the Map-Request, or to the Map-Server that is injecting EID-prefixes into the LISP-ALT on behalf of the authoritative ETR.

Map Server

A LISP Map-Server is deployed as a LISP Infrastructure component. LISP site commands are configured on the Map Server for a LISP ETR that registers to it, including an authentication key, which must match the one also configured on the ETR. A Map Server receives Map-Register control packets from ETRs. When the Map Server is configured with a service interface to the LISP-ALT, it injects aggregates for the registered EID prefixes into the LISP-ALT.

The Map-Server also receives Map-Request control packets from the LISP-ALT, which it then forwards as a LISP Encapsulated Control Messages (ECM) to the registered ETR that is authoritative for the EID prefix being queried. The ETR returns a Map-Reply message directly back to the ITR.

New Hardware Features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)XB1

There are no new hardware features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)XB1.

New Software Features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)XB1

This section describes the following new and changed software features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)XB1.

LISP Proxy Ingress Tunnel Router (PITR) Support

LISP Proxy Egress Tunnel Router (PETR) Support

LISP Support for IPv6

LISP Proxy Ingress Tunnel Router (PITR) Support

LISP Proxy Ingress Tunnel Router (PITR) support allows non-LISP enabled sites to communicate with LISP-enabled sites.

LISP Proxy Egress Tunnel Router (PETR) Support

LISP Proxy Egress Tunnel Router (PETR) support allows two LISP enabled sites with a common address-family to communicate with each other when the intermediate network between does not use that address family. PETR support also allows a LISP enabled site to communicate with non-LISP enabled sites when it is necessary to bypass Unicast Reverse Path Forwarding (uRPF) mechanisms.

LISP Support for IPv6

As a protocol, LISP was designed to operate in a mixed address-family manner. The initial Cisco IOS release of LISP did not implement IPv6 support. This release of Cisco IOS and Cisco IOS XE provides support for IPv6.

IPv6 support is provided for all LISP features available in these releases when LISP encapsulates IPv6 EIDs over IPv6 RLOCs or IPv6 EIDs over IPv4 RLOCs. This release does not support the LISP encapsulation of IPv4 EIDs over IPv6 RLOCs.

New Hardware Features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)XB

There are no new hardware features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)XB.

New Software Features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)XB

This section describes new and changed software features in Cisco IOS Release 15.1(1)XB.

Locator/ID Separation Protocol

Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP) is a next-generation routing feature. LISP can be used for any multi-homing environments while reducing operational complexities.

LISP creates a new paradigm by splitting the device identity, known an Endpoint Identifier (EID), and its location, known as its Routing Locator (RLOC) into two different numbering spaces. Splitting EID and RLOC functions yields several advantages that include improved scalability of the routing system through greater aggregation of RLOCs and improved multi-homing efficiency and ingress traffic engineering while avoiding site renumbering and reducing opex costs.

The Cisco IOS implementation of LISP supports the following Internet Drafts:

draft-ietf-lisp-07

draft-ietf-lisp-alt-04

draft-ietf-lisp-interworking-01

draft-ietf-lisp-lig-00

draft-ietf-lisp-ms-05
