The MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) is a packet transport technology based on a profile of the MPLS functionality specific to the construction of packet-switched transport networks. MPLS is described in [RFC3031], and requirements for MPLS-TP are specified in [RFC5654].

        Multiprotocol Label Switching Transport Profile (MPLS-TP)                      MIB-Based Management Overview


   A range of Management Information Base (MIB) modules has been    developed to help model and manage the various aspects of    Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) networks.  These MIB modules are    defined in separate documents that focus on the specific areas of    responsibility of the modules that they describe.

   The MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) is a profile of MPLS    functionality specific to the construction of packet-switched    transport networks.

   This document describes the MIB-based architecture for MPLS-TP,    indicates the interrelationships between different existing MIB    modules that can be leveraged for MPLS-TP network management, and    identifies areas where additional MIB modules are required.
