An AP is a bridge that is proactively programmed on the wireless side with the association process, as opposed to a learning (transparent) bridge that requires the broadcast. RFC 6775 / 8505 is the same thing at L3. If you add L3 features like an SVI to the AP, and L3 functions in there like RFC8505, routing, and/or ND proxy, then you have an L3-AP.

Hi Pascal,

out there again confusing everyone with needlessly invented terminology? :-)

These things are called 6LRs in RFC 6775/8505, for people who want to look up what they do (or do you mean 6LBRs?).
