HCX Mobility Optimized Networking (MON) is an enterprise capability of the VMware HCX Network Extension (HCX-NE) feature. MON enables optimized application mobility for virtual machine application groups that span multiple segmented networks or for virtual machines with inter-VLAN dependencies, as well as for hybrid applications, throughout the migration cycle.

  • You must explicitly set Mobility Optimized Networking when extending a network.

  • You can set Mobility Optimized Networking on an existing network extension.


    For existing network extensions, the network may experience a brief outage while the system publishes routes corresponding to the migrated virtual machines residing on the MON activated extended network.

To use HCX Mobility Optimized Networking, see HCX Network Extension with Mobility Optimized Networking for NSX-T.
