            MPLS-TP Identifiers Following ITU-T Conventions
                draft-ietf-mpls-tp-itu-t-identifiers-02

Abstract

   This document specifies an extension to the identifiers to be used in
   the Transport Profile of Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS-TP).
   Identifiers that follow IP/MPLS conventions have already been
   defined.  This memo augments that set of identifiers for MPLS-TP
   management and OAM functions to include identifier information in a
   format typically used by the ITU-T.

   provisions of BCP 78 and BCP 79.

Internet-Draft              MPLS-TP ITU-T IDs               October 2011

1.  Introduction

   This document augments the initial set of identifiers to be used in
   the Transport Profile of Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS-TP)
   specified in RFC 6370 [RFC6370].

   RFC 6370 [RFC6370] defines a set of MPLS-TP transport and management
   entity identifiers to support bidirectional (co-routed and
   associated) point-to-point MPLS-TP LSPs, including PWs and Sections
   which follow the IP/MPLS conventions.

   This document specifies an alternative way to uniquely identify an
   operator/service provider based on ITU-T conventions and specifies
   how this operator/service provider identifier can be used to make the
   existing set of MPLS-TP transport and management entity identifiers,
   defined by RFC 6370 [RFC6370], globally unique.

   This document solely defines those identifiers.  Their use and
   possible protocols extensions to carry them is out of scope in this
