This specification proposes an update to IPv6 Neighbor Discovery, to
enhance the operation of IPv6 over wireless links that exhibit lossy
multicast support, and enable a large degree of scalability by
splitting the broadcast domains. A higher speed backbone federates
multiple wireless links to form a large MultiLink Subnet. Backbone
Routers acting as Layer-3 Access Point route packets to registered
nodes, where an classical Layer-2 Access Point would bridge.
Conversely, wireless nodes register to the Backbone Router to setup
routing services in a fashion that is essentially similar to a
classical Layer-2 association.
