This document discusses various path computations approaches which are applicable to overlay networks [framework doc ref]. It discusses how the customer edge nodes uses the information advertised by the provider network to compute a path between two customer edge nodes or how it can request the provider network to compute a path and setup an end-2-end LSP.
