                 GMPLS RSVP-TE Extensions for Ethernet
    Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) Configuration

Abstract

   The work related to GMPLS Ethernet Label Switching (GELS) extended
   GMPLS RSVP-TE to support the establishment of Ethernet Label
   Switching Paths (LSPs).  IEEE Ethernet Connectivity Fault Management
   (CFM) specifies an adjunct Operations, Administration, and
   Maintenance (OAM) flow to check connectivity in Ethernet networks.
   CFM can also be used with Ethernet LSPs for fault detection and
   triggering recovery mechanisms.  The ITU-T Y.1731 specification
   builds on CFM and specifies additional OAM mechanisms, including
   Performance Monitoring, for Ethernet networks.  This document
   specifies extensions of the GMPLS RSVP-TE protocol to support the
   setup of the associated Ethernet OAM entities of Ethernet LSPs and
   defines the Ethernet technology-specific TLVs based on the GMPLS OAM
   Configuration Framework.  This document supports, but does not
   modify, the IEEE and ITU-T OAM mechanisms.
