This draft aims at providing a generic solution for updating PW characteristics (interface parameters, label) on-the-fly without service interruption. The document specifies a new generic PWE control protocol mechanism called the PW Update. A PW Update LDP sub-TLV is defined for that purpose. It defines the signaling extension and describes the procedures to dynamically update the PW parameters. A use case is provided for CESoPSN PWs.
