I believe NIV is 802.1qbh and 802.1BR seems to be just an advanced version of it. By simple looks, there doesnt seem to be much difference. Can someone please confirm this? And if there are any advancements, could you please list them?

IEEE 802.1Qbh was withdrawn in 2011 in favor of IEEE 802.1BR:

802.1Qbh withdrawn

As such, 802.1BR is simply an evolution of the abandoned Qbh standard.

According to Rene Raeber who participated in the 802.1Qbh standardization effort, there is no difference between 802.1Qbh and 802.1BR.
