This memo describes the specification of FANPv2 (Flow Attribute Notification Protocol version 2) distributed control mode (DC-mode). The FANPv2 is a protocol used by Cell Switch Routers (CSRs) to communicate mapping information between a specific packet flow and a virtual connection that conveys the packet flow. In the DC-mode, the control message exchange for a packet flow between each pair of neighboring CSRs is initiated independently from the message exchange for the same flow between any other pair of CSRs. The DC-mode is applicable to the control of both unicast and multicast cut-through paths.
