Abstract

This document specifies the requirements of an MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP). This document is a product of a joint effort of the International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and IETF to include an MPLS Transport Profile within the IETF MPLS and PWE3 architectures to support the capabilities and functionalities of a packet transport network as defined by International Telecommunications Union - Telecommunications Standardization Sector (ITU-T).

                Requirements of an MPLS Transport Profile

Abstract

   This document specifies the requirements of an MPLS Transport Profile    (MPLS-TP).  This document is a product of a joint effort of the    International Telecommunications Union (ITU) and IETF to include an    MPLS Transport Profile within the IETF MPLS and PWE3 architectures to    support the capabilities and functionalities of a packet transport    network as defined by International Telecommunications Union -    Telecommunications Standardization Sector (ITU-T).

   This work is based on two sources of requirements: MPLS and PWE3    architectures as defined by IETF, and packet transport networks as    defined by ITU-T.

   The requirements expressed in this document are for the behavior of    the protocol mechanisms and procedures that constitute building    blocks out of which the MPLS Transport Profile is constructed.  The    requirements are not implementation requirements.

Status of This Memo

   This document specifies an Internet standards track protocol for the    Internet community, and requests discussion and suggestions for    improvements.  Please refer to the current edition of the "Internet    Official Protocol Standards" (STD 1) for the standardization state    and status of this protocol.  Distribution of this memo is unlimited.
