Ballot Text

Technical Summary:

   The TRILL (Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links) protocol
   provides support for flow level multi-pathing with rapid failover
   for both unicast and multi-destination traffic in networks with
   arbitrary topology. Active-active at the TRILL edge is the
   extension of these characteristics to end stations that are
   multiply connected to a TRILL campus. This informational document
   discusses the high level problems and goals when providing
   active-active connection at the TRILL edge.

Working Group Summary:

   There was broad working group consensus that this document
   addresses and in favor of its publication as an Informational RFC. 

Document Quality:

  This document is of good quality. A significant number of vendors
  indicated that the active-active problem described in this document
  is of high importance to their customers and they plan to implement
  a solution.
