                 Extensions to IS-IS for Layer-2 Systems

Abstract

   This document specifies the Intermediate System to Intermediate    System (IS-IS) extensions necessary to support link state routing for    any protocols running directly over Layer-2.  While supporting this    concept involves several pieces, this document only describes    extensions to IS-IS.  Furthermore, the Type, Length, Value pairs    (TLVs) described in this document are generic Layer-2 additions, and    specific ones as needed are defined in the IS-IS technology-specific    extensions.  We leave it to the systems using these IS-IS extensions    to explain how the information carried in IS-IS is used.
