Abstract

Two alternate methods of encoding Multi Topology Identifier within the TRILL data frames are presented. Methods proposed herein do not require overloading TRILL RBridge nickname to encode Multi Topology Identifier. A method that expands TRILL nickname space from 16bits to 24 bits is also presented in this draft.
