Segment Routing is a new approach to implementing IP/MPLS networks proposed within the IETF. It aims to simplify the control plane implementation of existing MPLS networks, as well as to address the challenge of providing scalable source routing capabilities to MPLS - both for service provision, traffic engineering and fast re-route. This talk aims to provide an introduction to the motivations for SR, the fundamentals of the architecture, and some example use cases -- touching upon the potential direction that this approach could point to for IP/MPLS networks in the future.
