[OLSR-users] Question about topology information in standard OLSR ...

In plain OLSR all nodes know about all "MPR links". That is, only MPRs
will emit TC messages, and these messages will only contain the MPRs
MPR-selectors. So only "MPR links" will be known throughout the network.
Also a node knows about all 1 and 2 hop links due to neighbor sensing.

However, TC redundancy can be set so that all links are announced
by all nodes in the network. Check section 15.1 in RFC 3626
