               IP/MPLS Connectivity Provisioning Profile
          draft-boucadair-connectivity-provisioning-profile-00

Abstract

   This document describes the Connectivity Provisioning Profile (CPP)
   and proposes a CPP Template to capture IP connectivity requirements
   to be met in the context of delivery of services (e.g.  Voice over IP
   or IP TV) which are to be plugged upon an IP/MPLS infrastructure.

   The CPP defines the set of IP transfer parameters to be supported by
   the underlying IP/MPLS transport network together with a reachability
   scope and bandwidth/capacity needs.  Appropriate performance metrics
   such as one-way delay, one-way delay variation are used to
   characterize an IP transfer service.  Both global and restricted
   reachability scopes can be captured in the CPP.
