Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE) and Transparent Interconnection of
Lots of Links (TRILL) are two emerging standards in the data center environment.  While these two protocols are seemingly unrelated, they 
have a very similar behavior in the forwarding plane, as both perform hop-by-hop forwarding over Ethernet, modifying the packet's Media
Access Control (MAC) addresses at each hop.  This document describes
an architecture for the integrated deployment of these two protocols.  
This document is not an Internet Standards Track specification; it is
