The MIB module for provisioning and managing network virtualization features. This module provides manageability for VRF, VRF-Lite and vNET. VRF stands for Virtual Routing and Forwarding. VRF is an extension of IP routing that provides multiple routing instances. VRF provides independent routing instances and hence the same or over-lapping addresses can be used without conflicting each other. VRFs are used in conjunction with MPLS VPN to provide traffic separation between multiple VPN customers. A VRF-Lite enabled device implements VRFs and does not require MPLS for end to end communication. Instead of using MPLS labels, VRF-Lite uses the interfaces to distinguish routes for different VPNs. VRF-Lite forms virtual packet-forwarding tables by associating one or more interfaces with each VRF, and interfaces cannot belong to more than one VRF at any time. VRF-Lite is an IP based hop-by-hop virtualization mechanism and it involves complex configuration of every hop in the network. vNET, virtual network, is also an IP based hop-by-hop mechanism that can provide end-to-end virtualization of the network. vNET greatly reduces the complexity in VRF-Lite deployment. This MIB module will allow the user to perform the following * Create and monitor VRFs * Group VRFs to create VRF List * Associate/Dis-associate interface to/from a VRF * Enable vNET trunking on an interface * Specify VRF list per trunk
