                        Multi-Topology Extension
    for the Optimized Link State Routing Protocol Version 2 (OLSRv2)

Abstract

   This specification describes an extension to the Optimized Link State
   Routing Protocol version 2 (OLSRv2) to support multiple routing
   topologies, while retaining interoperability with OLSRv2 routers that
   do not implement this extension.

   This specification updates RFCs 7188 and 7631 by modifying and
   extending TLV registries and descriptions.
