               Pre-standard Linear Protection Switching in                     MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP)


   The IETF Standards Track solution for MPLS Transport Profile    (MPLS-TP) Linear Protection is provided in RFCs 6378, 7271, and 7324.

   This document describes the pre-standard implementation of MPLS-TP    Linear Protection that has been deployed by several network operators    using equipment from multiple vendors.  At the time of publication,    these pre-standard implementations were still in operation carrying    live traffic.

   The specified mechanism supports 1+1 unidirectional/bidirectional    protection switching and 1:1 bidirectional protection switching.  It    is purely supported by the MPLS-TP data plane and can work without    any control plane.
