Hello James.
Functionally BDI and SVI the same. BDI used with EVC. So on ASR routers you
use BDI on switches you use SVI's.
Have a good day.

Somethign I missed off of the back of that previous email - are BDIs the
same as more traditional BVIs (Bridge Virtual Interfaces) or do they do
extra functions?
