Babel is an open source command-line application especially designed by its developers to act as a loop-free and distance-vector routing protocol for both IPv4 and IPv6 Internet protocols.

With fast convergence properties, Babel is inspired by AODV, DSDV, and Cisco's EIGRP project, but it uses a flavor of ETX link cost estimation instead of a simple hop-count metric.

Originally designed for wireless ad-hoc networks, Babel works well on wired networks and features a distance-vector protocol, a proactive protocol, senses link quality for computing route metrics, and uses sequence numbers to make old routes feasible again.
