Protection against node failure is important for RSVP-TE LSPs, whether point-to-point or point-to-multipoint. While [RFC4090] provides a mechanism for node protection, it does not specify how to protect against failure of the ingress node. This document specifies the RSVP extensions to support ingress node protection and describes the necessary processing behavior.
