RBridges are devices that implement the IETF TRILL (Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links, RFC 6325) protocol. The Link Layer Discovery Protocol (LLDP, IEEE Std 802.1AB) is a one-way, unacknowledged protocol for the announcement of a station's capabilities to its peers. The set of peers that receive these frames and the scoping of the frame is primarily determined by the destination MAC address of the LLDP frame. This document specifies a Nearest-RBridge MAC address and other details of TRILL support of LLDP. It updates RFC 6325.
