Internet Society Requests For Comment (RFCs)
Proactive Connectivity Verification (CV), Continuity Check (CC), and Remote Defect Indication (RDI) for the MPLS Transport Profile [RFC6428] are applicable to all constructs of the MPLS-TP, including pseudowires (PWs). If the control plane is used to operate and manage PWs then the procedures defined in [RFC5085] and [RFC5885] should be used to select the proper type of Control Channel and the corresponding type of Connectivity Verification. This document specifies how signaling and selection processes are modified to ensure backward compatibility and allow use of proactive CV-CC-RDI over MPLS-TP PWs.

Virtual Circuit Connectivity Verification (VCCV) Capability Advertisement for MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP)
This document specifies how signaling and selection processes for Pseudowire (PW) Virtual Circuit Connectivity Verification (VCCV) are modified to ensure backward compatibility and allow use of proactive Connectivity Verification (CV), Continuity Check (CC), and Remote Defect Indication (RDI) over MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) PWs. This document introduces four new CV types and, to accommodate them, a new VCCV Extended CV parameter for PW Interface Parameters Sub-TLV is defined.
