The link quality mechanism of the Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET)
Neighborhood Discovery Protocol (NHDP) enables "ignoring" some 1-hop
neighbors if the measured link quality from that 1-hop neighbor is
below an acceptable threshold while still retaining the corresponding
link information as acquired from the HELLO message exchange.  This
allows immediate reinstatement of the 1-hop neighbor if the link
quality later improves sufficiently.

NHDP also collects information about symmetric 2-hop neighbors.
However, it specifies that if a link from a symmetric 1-hop neighbor
ceases being symmetric, including while "ignored" (as described
above), then corresponding symmetric 2-hop neighbors are removed.
This may lead to symmetric 2-hop neighborhood information being
permanently removed (until further HELLO messages are received) if
the link quality of a symmetric 1-hop neighbor drops below the
acceptable threshold, even if only for a moment.

This specification updates RFC 6130 "Mobile Ad Hoc Network (MANET)
Neighborhood Discovery Protocol (NHDP)" and RFC 7181 "The Optimized
Link State Routing Protocol Version 2 (OLSRv2)" to permit, as an
option, retaining, but ignoring, symmetric 2-hop information when the
link quality from the corresponding 1-hop neighbor drops below the
acceptable threshold.  This allows immediate reinstatement of the
symmetric 2-hop neighbor if the link quality later improves
sufficiently, thus making the symmetric 2-hop neighborhood more
"robust".

This document is a product of the Mobile Ad-hoc Networks Working Group of the IETF.

This is now a Proposed Standard.

for improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the Official
Internet Protocol Standards (https://www.rfc-editor.org/standards) for the
