Provider Backbone Bridging - Traffic Engineering (PBB-TE) [IEEE.802.1Q-2011] decouples the Ethernet data and control planes and allows external control and management mechanisms to create explicitly routed Ethernet connections. In addition, PBB-TE defines mechanisms for protection switching of bidirectional Ethernet connections. Ethernet Connectivity Fault Management (CFM) defines an adjunct connectivity-monitoring OAM flow to check the liveliness of Ethernet networks [IEEE.802.1Q-2011], including the monitoring of specific explicitly routed Ethernet connections. The ITU-T Recommendation Y.1731 [ITU-T.G.8013-2013] extended CFM and specified additional OAM functionality.

                  GMPLS RSVP-TE Extensions for Ethernet     Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) Configuration


   The work related to GMPLS Ethernet Label Switching (GELS) extended    GMPLS RSVP-TE to support the establishment of Ethernet Label    Switching Paths (LSPs).  IEEE Ethernet Connectivity Fault Management    (CFM) specifies an adjunct Operations, Administration, and    Maintenance (OAM) flow to check connectivity in Ethernet networks.    CFM can also be used with Ethernet LSPs for fault detection and    triggering recovery mechanisms.  The ITU-T Y.1731 specification    builds on CFM and specifies additional OAM mechanisms, including    Performance Monitoring, for Ethernet networks.  This document    specifies extensions of the GMPLS RSVP-TE protocol to support the    setup of the associated Ethernet OAM entities of Ethernet LSPs and    defines the Ethernet technology-specific TLVs based on the GMPLS OAM    Configuration Framework.  This document supports, but does not    modify, the IEEE and ITU-T OAM mechanisms.
