This document provides the network management framework for the Transport Profile for Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS-TP). Requirements for network management in an MPLS-TP network are documented in "Network Management Requirements for MPLS-based Transport Networks" , and this document explains how network elements and networks that support MPLS-TP can be managed using solutions that satisfy those requirements. The relationship between Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM), management, and other framework documents is described in the MPLS-TP framework  document.

Network Management Framework for MPLS-based Transport Networks
This document provides the network management framework for the Transport Profile for Multi-Protocol Label Switching (MPLS-TP).
This framework relies on the management terminology from the ITU-T to describe the management architecture that could be used for an MPLS- TP management network.
The management of the MPLS-TP network could be based on multi-tiered distributed management systems. This document provides a description of the network and element management architectures that could be applied and also describes heuristics associated with fault, configuration, and performance aspects of the management system.
This document is a product of a joint Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) / International Telecommunication Union Telecommunication Standardization Sector (ITU-T) effort to include an MPLS Transport Profile within the IETF MPLS and PWE3 architectures to support the capabilities and functionalities of a packet transport network.
