This document specifies a mechanism for protecting RFC2547 based VPN service against egress node failure. The mechanism enables local repair to be performed immediately upon a egress node failure. In particular, the router at point of local repair (PLR) can redirect VPN traffic to a protector to repair in the order of tens of milliseconds, achieving fast protection that is comparable to MPLS fast reroute.
