Abstract

This document specifies an initial set of identifiers to be used in the Transport Profile of Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS-TP). The MPLS-TP requirements (RFC 5654 [7]) require that the elements and objects in an MPLS-TP environment are able to be configured and managed without a control plane. In such an environment, many conventions for defining identifiers are possible. This document defines identifiers for MPLS-TP management and OAM functions compatible with IP/MPLS conventions. That is, the identifiers have been chosen to be compatible with existing IP, MPLS, GMPLS, and Pseudowire definitions.

Abstract

   This document specifies an initial set of identifiers to be used in    the Transport Profile of Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS-TP).    The MPLS-TP requirements (RFC 5654) require that the elements and    objects in an MPLS-TP environment are able to be configured and    managed without a control plane.  In such an environment, many    conventions for defining identifiers are possible.  This document    defines identifiers for MPLS-TP management and Operations,    Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) functions compatible with IP/    MPLS conventions.

   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.
