Abstract

This document describes a mechanism for fast protection against the failure of an egress node of an explicit point to multipoint (P2MP) multicast path/tree in a "Bit Index Explicit Replication" (BIER) Traffic Engineering (TE) domain. It does not have any per-flow state in the core of the domain. For a multicast packet to the egress node, when the egress node fails, its upstream hop as a PLR sends the packet to the egress' backup node once the PLR detects the failure.
