RFC 5614 (OSPF-MDR) extends OSPF to support mobile ad hoc networks
(MANETs) by specifying its operation on the new OSPF interface of type
MANET.  This document describes the use of OSPF-MDR (MANET Designated
Router) in a single-hop broadcast network, which is a special case of a 
MANET in which each router is a (one-hop) neighbor of each other router.  
Unlike an OSPF broadcast interface, such an interface can have a different 
cost associated with each neighbor.  The document includes configuration
recommendations and simplified mechanisms that can be used in
single-hop broadcast networks.

This document is a product of the Open Shortest Path First IGP Working Group of the IETF.
