                        Implementation Report for            Forwarding and Control Element Separation (ForCES)


   Forwarding and Control Element Separation (ForCES) defines an    architectural framework and associated protocols to standardize    information exchange between the control plane and the forwarding    plane in a ForCES network element (ForCES NE).  RFC 3654 has defined    the ForCES requirements, and RFC 3746 has defined the ForCES    framework.

   This document is an implementation report for the ForCES Protocol,    Model, and the Stream Control Transmission Protocol-based Transport    Mapping Layer (SCTP TML) documents, and includes a report on    interoperability testing and the current state of ForCES    implementations.
