        Title:      Transparent Interconnection of Lots of 
                    Links (TRILL) Smart Endnodes

This document addresses the problem of the size and freshness of the
endnode learning table in edge Routing Bridges (RBridges), by
allowing endnodes to volunteer for endnode learning and
encapsulation/decapsulation.  Such an endnode is known as a "Smart              
Endnode".  Only the attached edge RBridge can distinguish a "Smart              
Endnode" from a "normal endnode".  The Smart Endnode uses the
nickname of the attached edge RBridge, so this solution does not
consume extra nicknames.  The solution also enables endnodes that are
Fine-Grained Label (FGL) aware.

This document is a product of the Transparent Interconnection of Lots of Links 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.
