Abstract

The framework for MPLS in transport networks [RFC5921] provides reference models for the MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) Transport Service Interfaces, which are a User-to-Network Interface (UNI) and a Network-to-Network Interface (NNI). This document updates those reference models to show detailed reference points for these interfaces, along with further clarification of the functional architecture of MPLS-TP at a UNI and NNI.

Abstract

   The framework for MPLS in transport networks (RFC 5921) provides    reference models for the MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) Transport    Service Interfaces, which are a User-to-Network Interface (UNI), and    a Network-to-Network Interface (NNI).  This document updates those    reference models to show detailed reference points for these    interfaces, along with further clarification of the functional    architecture of MPLS-TP at a UNI and NNI.

   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 Pseudowire Emulation Edge-to-Edge    (PWE3) architectures to support the capabilities and functionalities    of a packet transport network as defined by the ITU-T.
