Technical Summary

A packet switching network may contain links with variable bandwidth, 
e.g., copper, radio, etc. The bandwidth of such links is sensitive 
to external environment. Availability is typically used for 
describing the link during network planning. This document 
introduces an optional Availability TLV in Resource ReSerVation 
Protocol - Traffic Engineer (RSVP-TE) signaling. This extension can 
be used to set up a Generalized Multi-Protocol Label Switching 
(GMPLS) Label Switched Path (LSP) using the Ethernet SENDER_TSPEC 

Working Group Summary

The document followed the regular process and no particular controversy was raised by any WG member.

Document Quality

The document is supported both by vendors and operators active in the working group.
