5 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. LINX Topology The LINX Network consists of two separate high- performance Ethernet switching platforms installed across seven locations. Switches from two equipment vendors are deployed in two separate networks to provide an extra level of fault-tolerance, the logic being that both systems shouldn't develop the same fault at the same time.

6 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. LINX Topology Two switches are installed in every LINX location, and the locations are interconnected by multiple 10 gigabit Ethernet circuits to form two physically separate backbone rings. Most LINX members connect to both switching platforms, which reduces the impact of any downtime on a single network element. Management of the logical redundancy of the network is done using MRP (Metro Ring Protocol). In the event of the loss of a network segment, MRP activates a redundant link within tenths of a second and restore connectivity.Metro Ring Protocol

10 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. AMS-IX Topology AMS-IX is a distributed exchange, currently present at five independent co-location facilities in Amsterdam. The AMS-IX topology is built around two hub/spoke arrangements. The core switches are Foundry Networks NetIron MLX-32 switches.NetIron MLX-32 Members connected with GigE, 100Base-TX or 10Base-T ports are connected to Foundry Networks BigIron 15000 and BigIron RX-8 switches.BigIron 15000BigIron RX-8 Members with a 10GbE port are connected to Glimmerglass Networks photonic cross-connects. These L1 switches connect the member 10GbE ports to BigIron RX-16 or NetIron MLX-16 switches.BigIron RX-16 NetIron MLX-16

11 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. AMS-IX Topology The two core switches run VSRP (Virtual Switch Redundancy Protocol) to define the active hub/spoke and to automatically fail over to the other, based on pre-defined triggers (e.g. link failure).Virtual Switch Redundancy Protocol All edge switches from Foundry follow VSRP automatically. The Glimmerglass switches follow the VSRP failover based on software developed at AMS-IX. Members can connect to the AMS-IX infrastructure at any of the five AMS-IX co-locations, at 100 Mbit/s, 1 Gbit/s or 10 Gbit/s.

13 © 2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. Metro Ring Protocol

14 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. Metro Ring Protocol (MRP) Metro Ring Protocol is a Layer 2 protocol designed to provide SONET-like, high speed, fault tolerant, fast recovery for Metro Ethernet networks. MRP SONET-like features provide: –Sub-second failover –Efficient use of bandwidth with topology groups (802.1s based) –Scalable protection for multiple VLANs –Large Scale L2 MANs with multi-ring support –Highly flexible network designs –Works with other L2 features Runs on all Ethernet and PoS/SDH interfaces, including 10 Gigabit

15 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. How it works A single node is defined as the Ring Master Node All other nodes are defined as Ring Member Nodes The Master Node prevents loops by blocking its secondary port Ring Hello Packets are generated by the Master Node to check ring integrity Ring Hello Packets As long as the master sees its own Hello packets on the secondary port, ring health is verified, and secondary port remains blocked Secondary (Blocking) Primary (Forwarding) RHP

16 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. Rapid Failover Hello packets are hardware forwarded by the nodes in the ring to ensure fastest failure detection. Master considers ring broken if no Hello packets are received within 300 ms (3 consecutive Hellos are lost). If no Hellos are received, Master transitions secondary port into forwarding state to restore ring connectivity. To provide reliable flushing of stale MAC entries, Master sends 3 consecutive TCN notifications. By changing timers and using messages sent by the node where the ring broke, it is possible to achieve recovery times from 150 ms to 200 ms. RHP NetIron 400 RHP TC NetIron 400 TC FAULT TC

17 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. Link Restoration Preventing Temporary Loops When an MRP port goes up, it goes into pre-forwarding mode to avoid the creation of temporary loops. In pre-forwarding mode the port forwards no data, but only the ring hello packets from the master. Master sees its own RHP, detects that ring integrity has been restored, puts its secondary port in blocking mode. From that point onwards, master sends RHPs with the Forwarding flag bit set, indicating that members should transition their ports from pre- forwarding to forwarding. The Forwarding flag bit is always set, as long as the master is blocking its secondary port. NetIron 400 RHP NetIron 400 Link restored RHP PF RHP F F

18 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. Topology Groups Topology Group Master VLAN Member VLAN Member VLAN Group A VLAN running a control protocol (or more) that controls the active topology for the whole topology group. Control protocols: STP, RSTP, MRP, VSRP. A VLAN running NO control protocol of its own but rather follows the active topology of the master VLAN.. A group of VLANs running NO control protocol of their own but rather follow the active topology of the master VLAN. VLAN groups are defined via the vlan-group command.

19 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. Efficient use of Ring Bandwidth MRP Supports Multiple Topology groups within a Ring An MRP Node can be both a Master node and Member Node for different topology groups Each Topology group contains a Master VLAN and Member VLANs Master VLANs generate Hello packets and block secondary ports 4094 VLANs can be divided among up to 255 Topology groups Topo Group 1 Topo Group 2

20 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. Using Multiple Rings There are 3 ring scenarios: Single ring Rings that dont overlap Overlapping rings that share links Each Ring runs its own instance of MRP A ring node can be Master for Multiple rings Single Ring Non-Overlapping Ring Overlapping Rings Phase I Phase II

21 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. Example Scenarios – Phase I –High-speed 10 GE trunks for Metro rings or IXPs –Provides sub-second fault-detection and fail-over –Superior scalability: no limit on maximum number of nodes per ring –Counter rotating topology groups provide efficient use of bandwidth BigIron 4000 S5 S6 S1 S4 S3 S2 Master node P rimary port S econdary port BigIron 4000 Ring 1 Ring 4 Ring 2 Master node BigIron 4000 S5 S4 Ring 3

22 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. Example Scenarios – Phase II –Shared ring support –Increased reliability –Increased bandwidth BigIron 4000 S5 S6 S1 S4 S3 S2 Master node P rimary port S econdary port BigIron 4000 Ring 1 Ring 4 Ring 2 Master node Master node BigIron 4000 S5 S4 Ring 3

26 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. Virtual Switch Redundancy Protocol VSRP provides an alternative to Rapid Spanning Tree Protocol (RSTP) in dual homed/mesh configurations, providing sub-second fail-over and recovery. VSRP features provide: –Sub-second fail-over –Efficient use of mesh bandwidth – no blocked links –Block and unblock ports at the per-VLAN group level –Large scale L2 MANs with multi-tiered support –Highly flexible network designs –Configurable tracking options –Works with other L2 features Works with all Ethernet interfaces, including 10 Gigabit VSRP is based on VRRP-E & can provide L2 and L3 backup

27 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. How it works S1 BigIron 4000 S3 BigIron 4000 S5 VSRP Master VSRP uses an election process to select a Master switch and up to 4 backup switches for each VLAN: higher configured priority wins; if equal, higher IP address wins. Only the Master switch forwards data, while Backup switches block traffic on all VSRP configured interfaces within the VLAN (or the topology group). Master switch sends Hello packets to all backup switches Switches do not have to be VSRP aware. VSRP aware provides faster failover. VSRP can track ports and decrease the priority of VSRP active switch in case a tracked port goes down. BigIron 4000 S4 S2 VSRP Aware Hello F B B F F B VSRP Backup

28 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. Rapid Failover A VSRP Backup switch monitors Hellos from the Master. If no Hellos are received for Master Dead Interval (default 300 ms), Backup goes into Hold Down state, starts sending periodic Hellos. Hold Down interval is by default 300 ms, and it allows for the election of a new master. If the switch is elected as Master, it sets its port into forwarding state, sends 3 TCNs. A VSRP aware switch receives TCN, and looks for the new master. Hellos of the new master will be received on a different port. A VSRP aware switch shifts the MAC addresses learned on the failed port to the new port.

29 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. Link Restoration Switching Back to Original Master When the failed link is restored, the original Master remains as a Backup. Original Master receives inferior Hello from the current Master, so it immediately replies with its own Hello, switches into Hold Down state (300 ms), starts sending periodic Hellos Current Master receives superior Hello, so it switches into Backup mode. If no superior Hellos are received during Hold Down interval, original Master considers itself the new current Master, and sets its port in Forwarding mode. New Master sends out 3 TCNs. A VSRP aware switch receives TCN, and looks for the new master. Hellos of the new master will be received on a different port.

31 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. VSRP Domains VSRP can be configured in separate domains within the same VLAN to allow for larger topologies. Topology groups can be designed to use unique paths in each domain. A TTL value within the VSRP Hello packet controls how deep the packet goes into the network. TTL is being decremented by 1 at each VSRP aware switch. Default TTL is 2, which allows Hello to traverse one VSRP aware switch to go to another VSRP active switch.

32 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. Intelligent Port Level Control VSRP can be configured to run only on designated ports Only VSRP configured ports are placed in blocking for Backup switches Supports host attachments and dual port NICs: host facing ports are configured as VSRP free. Works in combination with MRP to provide flexible Metro / Enterprise Ethernet designs. MRP MasterBackup VSRP Aware Dual Homed Servers NetIron 400

33 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. VSRP-Aware Switches Both VSRP-Aware and Non VSRP- Aware switches can be used as edge devices VSRP-Aware switches recognize the VSRP Hello packet sent by the Master, and then create an table which contains the VRID of the VLAN which sent the VSRP Hello plus the incoming port where the VSRP Hello was received. When the VSRP-Aware switch sees a Hello packet coming from a different port, it quickly moves the MAC address table entries to the new port.

34 ©2002 Foundry Networks, Inc. Non VSRP-Aware Switches Non VSRP-Aware switches can be used as edge devices, but they do not recognize VSRP Hello packets. MAC entries will age out or they will eventually be learned from the new port. This results in slow convergence when the Master fails. Solution is to configure VSRP Fast Start in the VSRP Master and Backup nodes. VSRP Fast Start disables and re-enable the ports before transitioning from Master to Backup. This causes a MAC address flush in the edge devices which makes convergence faster.
