   PCEP Procedures and Protocol Extensions for Using PCE as a Central
                     Controller (PCECC) of BIER-TE
                  draft-chen-pce-controller-bier-te-00

Abstract

   This document specifies extensions to PCEP protocol when a PCE-based
   controller is also responsible for configuring the forwarding actions
   on the routers, in addition to computing the paths for packet flows
   in a BIER-TE network and telling the edge routers what instructions
   to attach to packets as they enter the network.

1.  Introduction

   [RFC8283]introduces the architecture for PCE as a central controller
   as an extension of the architecture described in[RFC4655] and assumes
   the continued use of PCEP as the protocol used between PCE and PCC.
   [RFC8283]further examines the motivations and applicability for PCEP
   as a Southbound Interface (SBI), and introduces the implications for
   the protocol.
