  Description     : 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.
