a loop-free distance-vector routing protocol
Babel is a distance-vector routing protocol for IPv6 and IPv4 with
fast convergence properties. It was designed to be robust and
efficient on both wireless mesh networks and classical wired
networks. Babel has extremely modest memory and CPU
requirements. Unlike most routing protocols, which route either IPv4
or IPv6 but not both at the same time, Babel is a hybrid IPv6 and
IPv4 protocol: a single update packet can carry both IPv6 and IPv4
routes (this is similar to how multi-protocol BGP works). This makes
Babel particularly efficient on dual (IPv6 and IPv4) networks.
