SRv6 again..

Mon Apr 04, 2022 4:30 am

Of all the modern network features that are sitting in the Marvell chips, hw IPv6 + SRv6 is way way up at the top for me. On OSPF would be 'ok', but on ISIS w/ TI-LFA would be incredible.

Mikrotik, without exposing a roadmap or promissing, can you answer if you're considering adding this in?

Thanks.

The fact that a function is built in the ASIC does not imply that it will be implemented, much less that this is easy, it has become clear that it is quite difficult to bring each switch function to production

It does not happen only with MikroTik, even within the same manufacturer, substantial differences between model and model are observed.

MikroTik has greatly improved its switches over time

We have to tell MikroTik what we want else they won’t know. These new routers and switches are tackling big features, so the fact that the hardware supports something that is in high demand suggests MikroTik might be willing to put the efforts in.
