Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is being extended to the edge of operator networks, as is described in the multi-segment pseudowires (PWs) with Passive Optical Network (PON) access use case [RFC6456]. Combining MPLS with Optical Line Termination (OLT) access further facilitates a low-cost, multi-service convergence.

    Multi-Chassis Passive Optical Network (MC-PON) Protection in MPLS


   Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) is being extended to the edge of    operator networks including the network access nodes.  Separately,    network access nodes such as Passive Optical Network (PON) Optical    Line Terminations (OLTs) have evolved to support first-mile access    protection, where one or more physical OLTs provide first-mile    diversity to the customer edge.  Multihoming support is needed on the    MPLS-enabled PON OLT to provide resiliency for provided services.    This document describes the Multi-Chassis PON (MC-PON) protection    architecture in MPLS and also specifies the Inter-Chassis    Communication Protocol (ICCP) extension to support it.
