Technical Summary TRILL supports multi-access LAN links that can have multiple end stations and RBridges attached. This document describes four aspects of the TRILL LAN Hello protocol used on such links, particularly adjacency, designated RBridge selection, and MTU and pseudonode procedures, with state machines. There is no change for IS-IS point- to-point Hellos used on links configured as point-to-point in TRILL. Working Group Summary This document was developed in the TRILL working group with significant review from participants in the IS-IS WG. The scope of the document is based on a list of four items where that the IESG wanted to see clarified for the TRILL LAN Hello protocol. Document Quality There are implementations of TRILL that were developed without the benefits of this additional document. The assumptions is that future implementors will benefit from the additional level of detail in this document. Personnel Erik Nordmark <firstname.lastname@example.org> is the document shepherd.
