It’s been a couple of years since the first worldwide SRv6 deployment. Today we enjoy a rich ecosystem -routing vendors, merchant silicon, as well as opensource- and more importantly deployments in some of the largest networks. In this session we would like to highlight the state of SRv6 today, go through the existing deployment use-cases (with content contributed by those operators) as well as the technology behind it.

In the second half of the session, we would like to go through a recently announced technology: Path Tracing. This is a complementary tool to SR networks that solves a 40-year old IP problem: we do not know have a record of the exact path taken by packets in the network. This new technology -which is being standardizes at the IETF- allows measuring the actual packet experience in the network. It does so by by extracting the juice out of the router, so that it is implemented at linerate without any CPU processing or co-processor offloading.
