This document describes a simple and efficient mechanism that can be used to detect data plane failures in Multi-Protocol Label Switching Label Switched Paths that extend beyond a single Autonomous System and/or across multiple Service Provider network boundaries. This document describes extensions to the existing MPLS LSP Ping protocol to achieve these goals.
