Route summarization simplifies route tables by replacing many specific addresses with an single address. For example, 10.1.1.0/24, 10.1.2.0/24, and 10.1.3.0/24 can be replaced with 10.1.0.0/16. Route summarization policies enable routes to be shared efficiently among border leaf switches and their neighboring leaf switches. BGP, OSPF, or EIGRP route summarization policies are applied to a bridge domain or transit subnet. For OSPF, inter-area and external route summarization are supported. Summary routes are exported; they are not advertised within the fabric.
