The MRT project is researching new routing software architectures, protocols and tools. Software developed to date includes multi-protocol IPv4/IPv6 routing daemons and routing analysis/simulation tools. MRT software is in active use providing stress testing of commercial routers, collecting and analyzing Internet routing traffic for researchers, and serving as the primary routing software connecting networks to the Internet and the 6Bone.

MRT software binaries and source code are freely available. MRT source code and binaries may be freely modified and redistributed as long as the University of Michigan copyright notice is included in the redistribution. This research is funded by the National Science Foundation (NCR-9318902, NCR-9612764).
