DetNet Data Plane: MPLS over IEEE 802.1 Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN)
                   draft-ietf-detnet-mpls-over-tsn-07

Abstract

   This document specifies the Deterministic Networking MPLS data plane
   when operating over an IEEE 802.1 Time-Sensitive Networking (TSN)
   sub-network.  This document does not define new procedures or
   processes.  Whenever this document makes statements or
   recommendations, these are taken from normative text in the
   referenced RFCs.

1.  Introduction

   Deterministic Networking (DetNet) is a service that can be offered by
   a network to DetNet flows.  DetNet provides these flows with low
   packet loss rate and assured maximum end-to-end delivery latency.
   General background and concepts of DetNet can be found in [RFC8655].

   The DetNet Architecture decomposes the DetNet related data plane
   functions into two sub-layers: a service sub-layer and a forwarding
   sub-layer.  The service sub-layer is used to provide DetNet service
   protection and reordering.  The forwarding sub-layer is used to
   provide congestion protection (low loss, assured latency, and limited
   reordering) leveraging MPLS Traffic Engineering mechanisms.

   [RFC8964] specifies the DetNet data plane operation for MPLS-based
   Packet Switched Network (PSN).  MPLS encapsulated DetNet flows can be
   carried over network technologies that can provide the DetNet
   required level of service.  This document focuses on the scenario
   where MPLS (DetNet) nodes are interconnected by a IEEE 802.1 TSN sub-
