Ways to Install or Uninstall babeld Ubuntu 22.04

Updated: September 18, 2022

Babel is a distance-vector routing protocol for IPv6 and IPv4 with fast convergence properties, described in RFC 6126. 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. This implementation also includes a radio frequency-aware variant of Babel. I will show you how to install babeld on Ubuntu 22.04 in this tutorial.

Software Requirement

  • OS: Ubuntu 22.04 is needed for babeld to work
  • Privileges: Ensure that you are able to execute the sudo commands line.
