LSP-Ping and BFD for MPLS are existing and widely deployment OAM mechanisms for MPLS LSPs. This document describes ACH encapsulation for LSP-Ping, to enable use of LSP-Ping when IP addressing is not in use. This document also clarifies the use of BFD for MPLS LSPs using ACH encapsulation, when IP addressing may not be available and/or it may not be desirable to encapsulate BFD packets in IP.
