Abstract

In 'BGP Encodings and Procedures for Multicast in MPLS/BGP IP VPNs' [RFC6514], an optional transitive BGP attribute called the "P-Multicast Service Interface Tunnel (PMSI Tunnel) attribute" is specified. This BGP attribute uses an octet field to specify the PMSI tunnel type. RFC 6514 allocates the values 0-7.

          IANA Registry for P-Multicast Service Interface (PMSI)                         Tunnel Type Code Points

Abstract

   RFC 6514 created a space of Tunnel Type code points for a new BGP    attribute called the "P-Multicast Service Interface Tunnel (PMSI    Tunnel) attribute".  However, the RFC did not create a corresponding    IANA registry.

   There now is need to make further code point allocations from this    name space.  This document serves to update RFC 6514 in that it    creates an IANA registry for that purpose.
