The Babel - a debugging removal versus sector router log
The Babel is a loop-preventing IPv6 and IPv4 spacer sector-routing protocol with rapid conversions. It' s built on the DSDV, AODV and DIGRP from Cisco, but is engineered to work well not only in cabled networking, but also in meshed cordless networking, and has been expanded to include overlays.
As Babel is about to become an IETF standard, it is a new standard.

Babel's key characteristics are: rugged and effective in both wireline and wireline meshed and patterned networking; flexibility in selecting meters, includes hop counting, package drop, discovery multiplicity, and delay-based; dual stacks network capability (IPv4 and IPv6s); supports source-specific multi-homing routings; small scale deployment appropriate for embedded applications. Upon detecting a WiFi connection, babyeld will disable all optimizations and use a meter base on package lost that is set for the 802. 11 (WiFi) MAC (the ETX metric).
While slowing down conversion, this makes sure that the special features of cordless connections do not interfere with routers. The Babel is rugged in the face of mobility: in a purely meshed environment, Babel never establishes a route cycle, and in a prefix-based environment, all routes are bound to vanish as soon as an upgrade goes through a cycle (there is no "count to infinity").
The city of Babel is enjoying quite rapid growth. Because Babel uses trigger update and express request routings, they usually converge almost immediately after the completion of the links measurement. Babel will take its own initiative to optimise the route charts after the process of converting to a merely satisfying route offer.
If there is a large package lost, convergence on an optimum route rate can take up to 40 seconds or so (with the standard 16 second refresh interval). As an option, Babeld can consider the wireless frequencies to prevent interferences. It significantly enhances the power of multi-frequency networking.
Babel-RTT allows Babel to optimize routeing in overhead network environments. Baptiste Jonglez's Baptiste Jonglez review and an RTT-based router design describe this in detail. The Babel is a hybride IPv6 and IPv4 protocol: a unique upgrade package can contain both IPv6 and IPv4 paths (this is comparable to the functionality of multiprotocol BGP).
That makes Babel particularly effective and easy to administer in double-stack nets (IPv6 and IPv4). The Babel supports source-specific autorouting (sometimes known as SADR ), which allows a type of multi-homing without collaboration of the lp. For a detailed description, see Source-Specific Routing. Sturdy baby balls from babyeld are available in my Downloads area.
The Babel protocols have other implementations: Included is an IPv6 powered but otherwise quite full standalone Babel remake. The FRR (successor to Quagga) contains an Babel implement on the basis of the Babel one. But Babel is not yet part of a published FRR release, but should be in FRR2.
The Pybabel is an original new Python version of Babel, thanks to Markus Stenberg. This is a full IPv6 subgroup of RFC 6126 deployment, but without assistance for evaluating links QoS. We do not recommend it, except in small cable network. The Sbabeld is a minimalist stub-only Babel deployment, compiled on AMD 64 to only 12kB.
The OMNet++ calculator has an independently reimplemented Babel, which is described in this article. The Babelweb 2 is a web based visualization tool for Babel web sites that is fully buzzword-compliant (Go, HTML5, Websockets, etc.). The Tcpdump supports the display of Babel packages since release 4.2. Babel-pinger, a hook to allow persons using ThaCP to set up their own network router instead of talking to their upload providers about a corresponding router log to send a standard router to Babel, is available in my Downloads section.
The Shncpd is a config demon that together with babyeld provides a reasonably full set of features for implementing the IETF Homenet protocolsuite. Efforts are underway to establish whether it is appropriate for meshing networking. The AHCP is a config log for network configurations.
