Donald Eastlake, Stellar Switches

Donald Eastlake is co-chair of the IETF TRILL Working Group and a member of the IEEE 802.1 Working Group. Donald is author of about 50 IETF RFCs, including the only RFC with "sex" in its title. He was also the editor of the TRILL base protocol specification, and an author of a number of other TRILL related Internet Drafts. Previous, he was a Distinguished Member of Technical Staff at Motorola.
Abstract: RBridges, based on the IETF TRILL protocol, provide safe optimal pair-wise forwarding without configuration and support for multipathing of both unicast and multicast traffic. They achieve this with IS-IS routing and encapsulation of traffic with a header that includes a hop count. RBridges are compatible with previous IEEE 802.1 customer bridges, as well as IPv4 and IPv6 routers and end nodes, and such bridges can be incrementally replaced by RBridges. Current work on minimizing broadcast traffic, including ARP/ND optimization, will also be covered.
