MAC mobility

MAC mobility refers to the movement of a user terminal from one VTEP to another. The source VTEP is unaware of the MAC move event. To notify other VTEPs of the change, the destination VTEP advertises a MAC/IP advertisement route for the MAC address. The source VTEP withdraws the old route for the MAC address after receiving the new route. The MAC/IP advertisement route has a sequence number that increases when the MAC address moves. The sequence number identifies the most recent move if the MAC address moves multiple times.
