A comprehensive look at Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links (TRILL). This TRILL course starts with the problems in traditional switched networks then moves onto to how TRILL solves these problems. As IS -IS is key to loop free topologies in TRILL networks, this protocol is also studied.
Layer 2 versus Layer 3, STP problems: One path, convergence, MAC explosion. TRILL switches, RBridges, TRILL campus. TRILL standards
RBridges, mixing Rbridges with bridges, appointed forwarders.
Link layer IS-IS, SPF trees, traffic management. IS-IS extensions for TRILL. ISIS TLV.
TRILL IS-IS hello discovery, Designated bridge, IS-IS flooding, Appointed forwarder, unicast versus multi-destination frames. TRILL nicknames.
Local link header, TRILL header. TRILL over Ethernet, TRILL over PPP. VLANs. Fine grained labelling. TRILL BFD. TRILL OAM. Frame overheads.
