The MPLS transport profile (MPLS-TP) is being standardized to enable
carrier-grade packet transport.
This document discusses and specifies the P2MP framework primarily
related to OAM and related management in MPLS-TP networks. This
document mainly refers to RFC5654 and RFC6371. The main focus is on
the details that are not covered or not clarified in relevant RFCs
such as RFC5654, RFC5860, RFC5921, RFC5951, RFC6371, and draft-mpls-
Note: This I-D was made and updated including the discussions in
ITU-T SG15, which were described in Liaison Statements such as
This document is a product of a joint Internet Engineering Task
Force (IETF) / International Telecommunications Union
Telecommunications Standardization Sector (ITU-T) effort to include
an MPLS Transport Profile within the IETF MPLS and PWE3
architectures to support the capabilities and functionalities of a
packet transport network.
