Routing Policy System Working Group (RPS)
 
 

EION Open IP Environment RPS manages configured policy information and provides a consistent interface to all RPAs.



RPS Highlights and Literature

EION Open IP Environment Routing Policy Server demonstrates the following key features:

  • Provides access control lists (ACLs), which are used for packet filtering, route redistribution and for accept and announce policies as part of route maps
  • Provides route maps, which are used in route redistribution, or to implement protocol- specific accept and announce policies.
  • Manages the configured routing policies and provides a consistent interface to all routing protocol applications (RPAs). Each routing protocol uses this interface to access and apply the policies to their internal routing tables in determining which routes to accept or announce
  • Provides a registration mechanism for the RPAs. The Routing Policy engine uses this mechanism to generate a notification event to the registered RPAs whenever a policy changes.
  • Supports general Announce and Accept Policies common to all protocols.
  • Provides interfaces with the forwarding engine to add or delete across lists for incoming and outgoing packet filtering.


RPS Technical Specifications

EION Open IP Environment Routing Policy Server demonstrates the following key features:

  • EION RPS module enhances interoperability with other modules in the Common Control, Common Forwarding, Common System and Common Management planes.
  • Modular and portable design to support routing policy retrieval and evaluation with third-party RPAs.
  • RPS implementation resides in the Common Control Plane and interacts with the unicast RPAs
  • RPAs access the routing policy database using set of APIs provided by RPS.
  • Two types of interactions between the RPAs and RPS: connection management to create and destroy the RPS/RPA relationship, and routing policy retrieval and evaluation
  • RPS integrates with third party forwarding engines to provide routing policies for incoming and outgoing IP packets.
  • The forwarding engine passes the packets through access lists for packet filtering. Based on criteria defined in the access lists, packets are either forwarded to the appropriate next hop or dropped
  • Forwarding engines maintain their own local copy of the access lists that are used for packet filtering.
  • RPS downloads forwarding filters to the forwarding engine using the Open IP Environment Quality-of-Service (QoS) classifier APIs
