       BGP-LS Extensions for Transport Slice over IPv6 Dataplane
             draft-chen-idr-bgp-ls-transport-slice-srv6-01

Abstract

   [I-D.peng-teas-network-slicing]defines a unified TN-slice identifier,
   AII(administrative instance identifier), to indicate the topology,
   computing, storage resources of the dedicated virtual network for
   both intra-domain and inter-domain network slicing scenarios.  This
   draft defines extensions to BGP-LS protocol in order to advertise the
   information of the transport slice over IPv6 dataplane..

1.  Introduction

   For a packet network, network slicing requires the underlying network
   to support partitioning of the network resources to provide the
   client with dedicated (private) networking, computing, and storage
   resources drawn from a shared pool.
   [I-D.peng-teas-network-slicing]defines a unified TN-slice identifier,
   AII(administrative instance identifier), to indicate the topology,
   computing, storage resources of the dedicated virtual network for
   both intra-domain and inter-domain network slicing scenarios, and how
   to compute SR-BE or SR-TE path according to TN-slice Identifier
   combined with other criteria.

   [I-D.peng-lsr-isis-network-slicing-srv6]describes the ISIS extensions
   required to support Packet Network Slicing over IPv6 dataplane.

   For SRv6 case, IPv6 address resource is directly used to represent
   SID, so that different IPv6 block could be allocated to different TN-
   slice.  There are two possible ways to advertise TN-slice specfic
   IPv6 block:
