There’s a really nice (short) LISP Host Mobility Demo posted on YouTube from VMworld 2012 Barcelona. Check it out!
The Cisco LISP Team is preparing to deliver an UPDATED Advanced LISP Tectorial at Cisco Live London (January 2013)
(TECIPM-3191 – Advanced – LISP Techtorial)
This is a full day immersion into the different aspects of LISP. We’ll be covering not only the details of LISP for the various use-cases, but also some of the details of real, production, customer deployments. Use cases include VM-mobility, Internet Multi-homing, Large Scale WAN VPNs, Multi-tenant VPNs, Mobile Node mobility.
We will also be hosting an updated Walk In Self Paced (WISP) Lab on LISP. This Lab includes modules that cover multihoming, IPv6 transition, LISP/non-LISP interworking (PxTR deployments), and Shared Model Virtualization
We hope to see everyone at Cisco Live London!
The LISPmob Project, which was previously featured in our news section, has recently released version 0.2.0 of the software. The major new feature in this release is support for IPv6 EIDs, but a lot of important bug fixes are included as well.
The Wireshark community released a new stable branch of their popular packet analyzer with the 1.6.0 version. A noteworthy addition for the LISP community in this release is support for decoding LISP data and control packets, based on the patch from UPC previously mentioned here. The full release notes are available on the Wireshark project page.
The latest features, such as experimental InstanceID support, are still being released on the UPC project page first. Alternatively, the the github repository of the patch can also be watched for bleeding edge code.
Cisco recently announced that LISP has now been integrated into the Mainline IOS and IOS XE releases. In addition, a new Engineering Special for IOS was also released.
- LISP has now been included in MAINLINE Releases for IOS and IOS XE. The IOS image is the 15.1.4M release, and the IOS XE image is the 3.3.0S release. These images are FULLY supported by Cisco for any deployment scenario, including LISP. (The LISP code included in these mainline IOS and IOS XE images does not support LISP virtualization, however. LISP virtualization is only supported in the engineering images, but will be included in the next Mainline release.)
- A new LISP Engineering Special Release for IOS is now available. The IOS image is the 15.1(4)XB4. This LISP Engineering Special Release for IOS is also fully supported by Cisco for LISP deployments scenarios. This new LISP Engineering Special Release includes full support for LISP virtualization, and includes support
for the “ALT-less” deployment of a LISP PITR.

Our colleagues at KDDI Labs, in partnership w/ Furukawa Network Solution Corporation (FNSC) have successfully deployed LISP on an FNSC router. The FITELnet G21 router is currently operating in the LISP Beta Network. Near-term plans include further LISP interoperability testing, and multi-homing testing.
For interest, information on FNSC and their router is here:

Welcome to LISP!!
This Internet-Draft defines managed objects for the Locator/ID Separation Protocol (LISP). These objects provide information useful for monitoring LISP devices, including basic configuration information, LISP status, and operational statistics.
