Technical Summary As IPTV deployments grow in number and size, service providers are looking for solutions that minimize the service disruption due to faults in the IP network carrying the packets for these services. This document describes a mechanism for minimizing packet loss in a network when node or link failures occur. Multicast only Fast Re- Route (MoFRR) works by making simple enhancements to multicast routing protocols such as PIM and mLDP. Working Group Summary No issues. There is WG consensus to proceed with publication. Of particular note is the fact that the pim WG chairs were not only kept up to date on the progress of this draft, but that it was presented at one of their meetings. The pim WG was notified of the WGLC Document Quality Implementations and deployments exist. The document (currently in its 6th revision) has been thoroughly reviewed by the Shepherd, including changes to the structure of the document to improve readability and clarity. All comments have been addressed. Personnel Alvaro Retana is the Document Shepherd. Alia Atlas is the Responsible Area Director.
