The IETF has standardized RBridges (Routing Bridges), devices that
implement the TRILL (TRansparent Interconnection of Lots of Links)
protocol, a standard for least cost transparent frame routing in
multi-hop networks with arbitrary topologies, using link-state
routing and encapsulation with a hop count.
The TRILL base protocol standard supports up to 4K VLAN IDs (Virtual
Local Area Network IDentifiers). However, there are applications that
require more fine-grained labeling of data and end stations. This
document updates RFC 6325 by specifying extensions to the TRILL
protocol to accomplish this.
