This document defines extensions to BGP-4 to enable it to carry routing information for multiple Network Layer protocols (e.g., IPv6, IPX, L3VPN, etc...). The extensions are backward compatible - a router that supports the extensions can interoperate with a router that doesn't support the extensions.
