Abstract

   This document describes protocol-specific procedures and extensions
   for Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching (GMPLS) Resource
   ReSerVation Protocol - Traffic Engineering (RSVP-TE) signaling to
   support end-to-end Label Switched Path (LSP) recovery that denotes
   protection and restoration.  A generic functional description of
   GMPLS recovery can be found in a companion document, RFC 4426.
