The fabric console plane node is a LISP map server/resolver (MS/MR) with enhanced functions for software defined access including fabric wireless and scalable group tag mapping. It maintains a simple host tracking database to map endpoint identifiers to routing locators.
The control plane maps all endpoint identifiers location to current fabric edge or border nodes, and is capable of multiple types of endpoint identifier lookups, including IPv4, IPv6 and MAC.
The control plane will receive registrations from fabric edge or border nodes for known endpoint identifier prefixes from wired endpoints and from fabric mode wireless LAN controllers for wireless clients.
It resolves lookup requests from fabric edge or border nodes to locate destination endpoint identifiers and updates fabric edge nodes and border nodes with wired or wireless client mobility and routing locator information.
