Abstract

   This document describes how profiles of the Traffic Engineering (TE)
   Topology Model, defined in RFC8795, can be used to address
   applications beyond "Traffic Engineering".

1. Introduction

   There are many network scenarios being discussed in various IETF
   Working Groups (WGs) that are not classified as "Traffic Engineering"
   but can be addressed by a sub-set (profile) of the Traffic
   Engineering (TE) Topology YANG data model, defined in [RFC8795].

   Traffic Engineering (TE) is defined in [RFC3272bis] as aspects of
   Internet network engineering that deal with the issues of performance
   evaluation and performance optimization of operational IP networks.

Internet-Draft           TE Topology Profiles              January 2021

   TE encompasses the application of technology and scientific
   principles to the measurement, characterization, modeling, and
   control of Internet traffic.

   The TE Topology Model is augmenting the Network Topology Model
   defined in [RFC8345] with generic and technology-agnostic features
