The Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL) protocol [RFC6325] provides optimal pair-wise data frame routing without configuration in multi-hop networks with arbitrary topology. TRILL supports multipathing of both unicast and multicast traffic. Devices that implement TRILL are called TRILL switches or Routing Bridges (RBridges).
