This document describes a mechanism that allows a single router to
share one or more circuits among multiple Intermediate System to
Intermediate System (IS-IS) routing protocol instances.

Multiple instances allow the isolation of resources associated with
each instance.  Routers will form instance-specific adjacencies.
Each instance can support multiple topologies.  Each topology has a
unique Link State Database (LSDB).  Each Protocol Data Unit (PDU)
will contain a new Type-Length-Value (TLV) identifying the instance
and the topology (or topologies) to which the PDU belongs.

This document obsoletes RFC 6822.

This document is a product of the IS-IS for IP Internets Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
