TRILL (Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links) routing can be
extended to support multiple levels by building on the multilevel
feature of IS-IS routing.  Depending on how nicknames are managed,
there are two primary alternatives to realize TRILL multilevel: the
unique nickname approach and the aggregated nickname approach as
discussed in RFC 8243.  This document specifies a unique nickname
approach.  This approach gives unique nicknames to all TRILL switches
across the multilevel TRILL campus.

This document is a product of the Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

STANDARDS TRACK: This document specifies an Internet Standards Track
protocol for the Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions
for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the 
standardization state and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this 
memo is unlimited.
