Ethernet Ring Protection Switching (ERPS) provide sub-50ms protection and recovery switching for Ethernet traffic in a ring topology and at the same time ensuring that there are no loops formed at the Ethernet layer, which is defined in ITU-T G. 8032. The goal of this project is to implement the ERPS protocol in FreeBSD, so that the appliances such as pfSense and FreeNAS can be directly plugged into the ERPS network without the need to sit behind routers.
