    Non-Penultimate Hop Popping Behavior and Out-of-Band Mapping for
                      RSVP-TE Label Switched Paths

Abstract

   There are many deployment scenarios that require an egress Label
   Switching Router (LSR) to receive binding of the Resource Reservation
   Protocol - Traffic Engineering (RSVP-TE) Label Switched Path (LSP) to
   an application and a payload identifier using some "out-of-band"
   (OOB) mechanism.  This document defines protocol mechanisms to
   address this requirement.  The procedures described in this document
   are equally applicable for point-to-point (P2P) and point-to-
   multipoint (P2MP) LSPs.

1.  Introduction

   When Resource Reservation Protocol - Traffic Engineering (RSVP-TE) is
   used for applications like Multicast Virtual Private Network (MVPN)
   [RFC6513] and Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) [RFC4761], an egress
   Label Switching Router (LSR) receives the binding of the RSVP-TE
   Label Switched Path (LSP) to an application and a payload identifier
   using an "out-of-band" (OOB) mechanism (e.g., Border Gateway Protocol
   (BGP)).  In such cases, the egress LSR cannot make correct forwarding
