Bit Index Explicit Replication (BIER) is an architecture that provides multicast forwarding through a "BIER domain" without requiring intermediate routers to maintain multicast related per-flow state. BIER can be supported in MPLS and non-MPLS networks. This document specifies the required extensions to the IS-IS, OSPFv2 and OSPFv3 protocols for supporting BIER in non-MPLS networks using BIER in Ethernet encapsulation.
