Techniques are described herein to forward IPv6 packets without performing table lookup using IPv6 Segment Routing (SRv6). The forwarding pipeline may forward the packet without performing route lookup by parsing the IPv6 Segment Identifier (SID) from the Segment Routing Header (SRH). The next-hop Media Access Control (MAC) address, outgoing interface and outgoing Virtual Local Area Network (VLAN) may be embedded as part of the SID.
