The Optimized Link State Routing Protocol version 2 (OLSRv2) is the successor to OLSR (version 1) as published in [RFC3626]. Compared to [RFC3626], OLSRv2 retains the same basic mechanisms and algorithms, enhanced by the ability to use a link metric other than hop count in the selection of shortest routes. OLSRv2 also uses a more flexible and efficient signaling framework and includes some simplification of the messages being exchanged.
