1.  Introduction

   The dynamic Link Exchange Protocol (DLEP) is defined in [RFC8175].
   It provides the exchange of link-related control information between
   DLEP peers.  DLEP peers are comprised of a modem and a router.  DLEP
   defines a base set of mechanisms as well as support for possible
   extensions.  This document defines one such extension.

1.1.  Requirements Language

   The key words "MUST", "MUST NOT", "REQUIRED", "SHALL", "SHALL NOT",
   "SHOULD", "SHOULD NOT", "RECOMMENDED", "MAY", and "OPTIONAL" in this
   document are to be interpreted as described in [RFC2119].

2.  Extension Usage and Identification

   The use of the Radio Quality Extension SHOULD be configurable.  To
   indicate that the Radio Quality Extension is to be used, an
   implementation MUST include the Radio Quality Extension Type Value in
   the Extensions Supported Data Item.  The Extensions Supported Data
   Item is sent and processed according to [RFC8175].

   The Radio Quality Extension Type Value is TBD; see Section TBD.

3.  Radio Quality Data Items

   This section describes the quality related Data Items of this
   extension.

3.1.  Radio SNR Data Item

   Radio SNR Data Item contains information which signal to noise ratio
   the radio measured.  This Data Item can be both interface and
   neighbor specific.

   The format of the Radio SNR Data Item is:

   0                   1                   2                   3
