This document proposes a design for an L2 aware Autonomic Control Plane that can be deployed easily to layer-two (Ethernet) switched technologies that are common on Campus/Enterprise network architectures. This document leverages the hop-by-hop announcement used in LLDP, but runs bulk data over normal IPv6 Link-Local unicast ethernet frames.
