Abstract

   Backbone Routers are RFC8505 Routing Registrars that provide proxy
   services for IPv6 Neighbor Discovery.  Backbone Routers federate
   multiple wireless Links over a Backbone Link to form a MultiLink
   Subnet.  Backbone Routers placed along the wireless edge of the
   Backbone handle IPv6 Neighbor Discovery, and route packets on behalf
   of registered nodes.
