Abstract

This document describes a model for managing Routing Bridges (RBridges), also known as TRILL Switches, as defined in [RFC6325]. RBridges provide optimal pair-wise forwarding without configuration using IS-IS routing and encapsulation of traffic. RBridges are compatible with previous IEEE 802.1 customer bridges as well as IPv4 and IPv6 routers and end nodes. They are as invisible to current IP routers as bridges are and, like routers, they terminate the bridge spanning tree protocol. In creating an RBridge management model, the device is viewed primarily as a customer bridge. For a discussion of the problem addressed by TRILL (Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links), see [RFC5556].
