Multicast Control Extensions for the Access Node Control Protocol (ANCP)

Abstract

   This document specifies the extensions to the Access Node Control
   Protocol (ANCP) (RFC 6320) required for support of the multicast use
   cases defined in the Access Node Control Protocol framework document
   (RFC 5851) and one additional use case described in this document.
   These use cases are organized into the following ANCP capabilities:

   o  multicast replication initiated by the Network Access Server
      (NAS);

   o  conditional access and admission control with white and black
      lists;

   o  conditional access and admission control with grey lists;

   o  bandwidth delegation; and

   o  committed bandwidth reporting.

   These capabilities may be combined according to the rules given in
   this specification.

   This document updates RFC 6320 by assigning capability type 3 to a
   capability specified in this document and by changing the starting
   point for IANA allocation of result codes determined by IETF
   Consensus from 0x100 to 0x64.
