                   RSVP ASSOCIATION Object Extensions

Abstract

   The RSVP ASSOCIATION object was defined in the context of GMPLS-
   controlled Label Switched Paths (LSPs).  In this context, the object
   is used to associate recovery LSPs with the LSP they are protecting.
   This object also has broader applicability as a mechanism to
   associate RSVP state.  This document defines how the ASSOCIATION
   object can be more generally applied.  This document also defines
   Extended ASSOCIATION objects that, in particular, can be used in the
   context of the MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP).  This document
   updates RFC 2205, RFC 3209, and RFC 3473.  It also generalizes the
   definition of the Association ID field defined in RFC 4872.
