This document describes the configuration of proactive MPLS-TP OAM functions for a given LSP using TLVs that use GMPLS RSVP-TE [RFC3473]. [RFC7260] defines use of GMPLS RSVP-TE for the configuration of OAM functions in a technology-agnostic way. This document specifies the additional mechanisms necessary to establish MPLS-TP OAM entities at the maintenance points for monitoring and performing measurements on an LSP, as well as defining information elements and procedures to configure proactive MPLS-TP OAM functions running between Label Edge Routers (LERs). Initialization and control of on-demand MPLS-TP OAM functions are expected to be carried out by directly accessing network nodes via a management interface; hence, configuration and control of on-demand OAM functions are out of scope for this document.

Configuration of Proactive Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) Functions for MPLS-Based Transport Networks Using RSVP-TE
This specification describes the configuration of proactive MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) functions for a given Label Switched Path (LSP) using a set of TLVs that are carried by the GMPLS RSVP-TE protocol based on the OAM Configuration Framework for GMPLS RSVP-TE.
