This document specifies a fast-protection mechanism for protecting [RFC2547] based VPN service against egress node failure. This mechanism enables local repair to be performed immediately upon a egress node failure. In particular, the routers upstream to egress node could redirect VPN traffic to a protector (a new role) to repair in the order of tens of milliseconds, achieving fast protection that is comparable to MPLS fast reroute.
