IPv6 Segment Routing

Mon, Jan 13, 2020 - 1762 Words - 9 minutes

Segment routing is a form of source routing in which a node that originates a packet (the headend node), adds an ordered list of segments (or instructions) to that packet. Such an ordered list is called a segment routing (SR) policy. These segments tell the routers along the path how that packet should be forwarded. Only the headend node to a segment routing domain maintains per flow state. There is no per flow state inside the network.
