                  Multicast VPN Fast Upstream Failover
                 draft-ietf-bess-mvpn-fast-failover-15

Abstract

   This document defines Multicast Virtual Private Network (VPN)
   extensions and procedures that allow fast failover for upstream
   failures by allowing downstream Provider Edges (PEs) to consider the
   status of Provider-Tunnels (P-tunnels) when selecting the Upstream PE
   for a VPN multicast flow.  The fast failover is enabled by using RFC
   8562 Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) for Multipoint Networks
   and the new BGP Attribute - BFD Discriminator.  Also, the document
   introduces a new BGP Community, Standby PE, extending BGP Multicast
   VPN routing so that a C-multicast route can be advertised toward a
   Standby Upstream PE.
