Abstract

Experience in implementing and deploying the ForCES architecture has demonstrated the need for a few small extensions both to ease programmability and to improve wire efficiency of some transactions. This document describes a few extensions to the semantics in the ForCES protocol specification [RFC5810] to achieve that end goal.

  Forwarding and Control Element Separation (ForCES) Protocol Extensions

Abstract

   Experience in implementing and deploying the Forwarding and Control    Element Separation (ForCES) architecture has demonstrated the need    for a few small extensions both to ease programmability and to    improve wire efficiency of some transactions.  The ForCES protocol is    extended with a table range operation and a new extension for error    handling.  This document updates the semantics in RFCs 5810 and 7121    to achieve that end goal.
