Ballot Text

Technical Summary

  This document specifies a protocol for multilevel TRILL using a form
  of aggregated nicknames where level 1 areas are identified by the
  set of border RBridges connecting them to level 2. Nicknames can be
  re-used in multiple level 1 areas of this type while nicknames used
  in level 2, including by boarder RBridges, must be unique across the
  TRILL campus.

Working Group Summary

  This document was adopted by the TRILL Working Group but that
  working group was dissolved before the document was progressed.
  The WG designed two approaches (unique nickname and an aggregated 
  nickname) and documented these in RFC8243.  The aggregated approach
  has discussed these improvements, but implementation "proof of 
  concepts" were considered useful prior to standardization. 

Document Quality

  This document is of good quality.
