In this talk, Thomas will discuss the implementation of  an L2 forwarder using Network Service Mesh and VPP. By way of a practical example, this talk will show how NSM can serve as a vehicle for constructing a layer 2 network using a VPP based forwarder. Attendees will see the gRPC protocol additions for injecting an L2 service into a Kubernetes pod. They will also see how a container with VPP forwarder can be injected into the pod to handle L2 traffic. Also, he will discuss how this can be extended for other network elements such as L3 routers, tunnel endpoints or layered network slices using SRV6 or MPLS.
