This show was recorded on July 7, 2011 (the week before Cisco Live Las Vegas), where Greg and Ethan were joined by subject matter expert Victor Moreno of Cisco in a topical podcast about LISP, the Locator/ID Separation Protocol.
QUESTIONS WE ASKED

- What are LISP’s loop prevention & route optimization mechanisms?
- Is there a way to apply routing policies to a LISP environment?
- Is LISP going to talk directly to devices like vCenter or OpenFlow controllers?
- Do all LISP routers maintain a synchronized routing table?
- Cisco has an inside joke that “the only way is the overlay.” What’s that mean?
- Are enterprises dependent on their ISPs if they’d like to leverage LISP?
- What are some applications for privately deployed LISP inside the data center?
- How does LISP detect when a host has moved from one domain to another?
