Technical Summary This document specifies extensions to OSPF for a Topology Transparent Zone within an area which is hidden from the rest of the network. The TTZ can still route or provide services end to end by creating virtual links to all its edge routers. Working Group Summary There has been some discussion on the draft in the wg and it is a natural extension in OSPF. There was discussion on the mailing list with respect to TTZ transitions during the WG last call and these were addressed in a revision of the draft. Document Quality This document has been a WG document for a little over 1 year. It is stable, without changes to the technical solution for more than six months. One vendor has done at least a partial implementation to test out aspects of the technology. Personnel Padma Pillay-Esnault is the Document Shepherd. Alia Atlas is the Responsible Area Director.
