This document specifies the Multicast Protocol for Low-Power and
Lossy Networks (MPL), which provides IPv6 multicast forwarding in
constrained networks.  MPL avoids the need to construct or maintain
any multicast forwarding topology, disseminating messages to all MPL
Forwarders in an MPL Domain.

MPL has two modes of operation.  One mode uses the Trickle algorithm
to manage control-plane and data-plane message transmissions and is
applicable for deployments with few multicast sources.  The other
mode uses classic flooding.  By providing both modes and
parameterization of the Trickle algorithm, an MPL implementation can
be used in a variety of multicast deployments and can trade between
dissemination latency and transmission efficiency.

This document is a product of the Routing Over Low power and Lossy networks 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.
