Abstract

Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) Traffic Engineering (TE) Label Switched Paths (LSPs) can be route constrained by making use of the Explicit Route Object (ERO) and related subobjects as defined in [RFC3209], [RFC3473], [RFC3477], [RFC4873], [RFC4874], [RFC5520], and [RFC5553]. Several documents have identified the need for attributes that can be targeted at specific hops in the path of an LSP, including [RFC6163], [WSON-SIG], [RFC7571], or [OBJ-FUN]. This document provides a generic mechanism for use by these other documents.
