IP-based VPNs use the next-generation Virtual Routing/Forwarding instance (VRF)-Lite, called Easy Virtual Network (EVN). This simplifies Layer 3 network virtualization and allows customers to easily provide traffic separation and path isolation on a shared network infrastructure, removing the need to deploy MPLS in the enterprise network. EVN is fully integrated with traditional MPLS-VPN or MPLS VPNomGRE.
