This document augments the initial set of identifiers to be used in
the Transport Profile of Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS-TP)
defined in RFC6370.
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 RFC6370, globally unique.
This document solely defines those identifiers. Their use and
possible protocols extensions to carry them is out of scope in this
Working Group Summary:
When we started the MPLS-TP project, it was generally understood that
the IETF protocols would be the protocols to be extended and built
upon. Backwards compatibility and one single MPLS technology, among
other things were considered important.
However, it was also agreed that MPLS-TP should be possible to run in
networks that do not natively include IP routing and IP addressing.
This doucment specifies a set of identifiers for such networks.
While the working group has never taken a strong interest in this
document, there has also been a general agreement that the
"ITU-T identifiers" need to be specified as part of the MPLS-TP
We do not know any implementations of this draft.
