RBridge campuses provide transparent least-cost forwarding using the Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL) protocol that builds on Intermediate System to Intermediate System (IS-IS) routing [IS-IS] [RFC1195] [RFC7176]. Devices that implement TRILL are called Routing Bridges (RBridges) or TRILL Switches. However, the TRILL base protocol standard [RFC6325] provides only for TRILL Data messages and TRILL IS-IS messages.
