The Optimized Link State Routing Protocol version 2 [RFC7181] (OLSRv2) is a proactive link state routing protocol designed for use in Mobile Ad Hoc Networks (MANETs) [RFC2501]. One of the significant improvements of OLSRv2 over its Experimental precursor [RFC3626] is the ability of OLSRv2 to use link metrics to select routes other than minimum hop routes.

Multi-Topology Extension for the Optimized Link State Routing Protocol Version 2 (OLSRv2)
This specification describes an extension to the Optimized Link State Routing Protocol version 2 (OLSRv2) to support multiple routing topologies, while retaining interoperability with OLSRv2 routers that do not implement this extension.
This specification updates RFCs 7188 and 7631 by modifying and extending TLV registries and descriptions.
