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 was created to provide layer 3 connectivity throughout a data center, from the spine switches and leaf switches all the way down to hosts, virtual machines and containers. It is designed to streamline the routing protocol stack. FRR can connect connecting hosts, virtual machines, and containers to the network; network switching and routing; and Internet access/peering routers. FRR provides a simplified data center design subnet freedom, enhanced redundancy and stateless load balancing.
