Abstract

TRILL can be implemented in data center networks, which requires high reliability and stability. Whenever the egress RBridges or links break down, the TRILL rerouting time depends on the IS-IS topology convergence time, which may do not meet data center service requirements in terms of resiliency. VRRP provides a redundancy mechanism to avoid single point of failure and fast switching over. This draft proposes to extend VRRP protocol to TRILL in data center networks.
