FRRouting (FRR) is an IP routing protocol suite for Linux and Unix platforms which includes protocol daemons for BGP, IS-IS, LDP, OSPF, PIM, and RIP.
FRR’s seamless integration with the native Linux/Unix IP networking stacks makes it applicable to a wide variety of use cases including connecting hosts/VMs/containers to the network, advertising network services, LAN switching and routing, Internet access routers, and Internet peering.
FRR has its roots in the Quagga project. In fact, it was started by many long-time Quagga developers who combined their efforts to improve on Quagga's well-established foundation in order to create the best routing protocol stack available. We invite you to participate in the FRRouting community and help shape the future of networking.
Join the ranks of network architects using FRR for ISPs, SaaS infrastructure, web 2.0 businesses, hyperscale services, and Fortune 500 private clouds.
One of the most exciting parts of being in this industry over the past couple of decades has
been witnessing the transformative impact that open source software has had on IT in general and
specifically on networking. Contributions to various open source projects have fundamentally helped
bring the reliability and economics of web-scale IT to organizations of all sizes. I am happy to
report the community has taken yet another step forward with FRRouting.
