ISIS is a routing protocol that runs over ISO/clns - so what is your
question ?

As opposed to OSPF, which runs over IP, and BGP, which runs over TCP, (Integrated) ISIS is defined to run directly over the data link layer. There is an internet draft about enabling ISIS to run over IP. I'm trying to find operational experience with it.
