I'm not really convinced that this will really be implemented in a home network or small enterprise networks, as ISIS isn't a protocol widely supported on that platforms.

I was thinking more about shortest path bridging switch autodiscovery, but this is only my own opinion.

[Bing] I agree ISIS is not widely supported on small devices nowadays. But I think it might has the potential in the future.

Actually, In Homenet the ISIS is already in the short list for their routing protocol choice (

[Uma]:  Sure,  though still it's complicated situation in Homenet, IS-IS is not out.  Some of you may aware, there was a design team formed including routing experts and

Homenet experts to come out with recommendations for the suitable RP for their needs.

And there is also some operator showed explicit requirement for ISIS in home routers.

[Uma]: We too have some discussions on this internally and I see the potential for future requests..

               IMO, this work should be progressed by closing on the corner cases further and I support this.
