                 IS-IS Routing for Spine-Leaf Topology
                 draft-ietf-lsr-isis-spine-leaf-ext-02

Abstract

   This document describes a mechanism for routers and switches in a
   Spine-Leaf type topology to have non-reciprocal Intermediate System
   to Intermediate System (IS-IS) routing relationships between the
   leafs and spines.  The leaf nodes do not need to have the topology
   information of other nodes and exact prefixes in the network.  This
   extension also has application in the Internet of Things (IoT).
