The Multiprotocol Label Switching Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) is the common set of MPLS protocol functions defined to meet the requirements specified in [RFC5654]. The MPLS-TP Framework [RFC5921] provides an overall introduction to the MPLS-TP and defines the general architecture of the Transport Profile, as well as the aspects specific to point-to-point transport paths. The purpose of this document is to define the elements and functions of the MPLS-TP architecture applicable specifically to supporting point-to- multipoint transport paths.

      A Framework for Point-to-Multipoint MPLS in Transport Networks


   The Multiprotocol Label Switching Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) is the    common set of MPLS protocol functions defined to enable the    construction and operation of packet transport networks.  The MPLS-TP    supports both point-to-point and point-to-multipoint transport paths.    This document defines the elements and functions of the MPLS-TP    architecture that are applicable specifically to supporting point-to-    multipoint transport paths.
