   The IETF TRILL (TRansparent Interconnection of Lots of Links)
   protocol provides support for flow level multi-pathing for both
   unicast and multi-destination traffic in networks with arbitrary
   topology. Active-active access at the TRILL edge is the extension of
   these characteristics to end stations that are multiply connected to
   a TRILL campus. In this document, the edge RBridge (TRILL switch)
   group providing active-active access to such an end station can be
   represented as a Virtual RBridge. Based on the concept of Virtual
   RBridge along with its pseudo-nickname, this document facilitates the
   TRILL active-active access of such end stations.
