Technical Summary This document specifies use of the Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) protocol in RBridge campuses based on the RBridge Channel extension to the the TRILL protocol. BFD is a simple, widely deployed OAM mechanism in IP and MPLS networks, using UDP and ACH encapsulation respectively. This document specifies the BFD encapsulation over TRILL. Working Group Summary There was a clear consensus in favor of the document with the consensus determination made in late February. There was then some delay due to fixing various editorial problems and nits, many of which were discussed on the mailing list during the WG Last Call, but these have now been fixed. Document Quality BFD and TRILL are both widely implemented although there have been no announced implementations of the BFD encapsulation for TRILL in this document. During the review period, the addition of some material to the Security Considerations section was suggested and adopted.
