IS-IS Extensions to Support Packet Network Slicing using Segment Routing
                 draft-zch-lsr-isis-network-slicing-02

Abstract

   [I-D.peng-teas-network-slicing] defines a unified administrative
   instance identifier to distinguish different virtual network
   resources for both intra-domain and inter-domain network slicing
   scenarios.  This draft describes the IS-IS extensions required to
   support Packet Network Slicing using Segment Routing.

1.  Introduction

   For a packet network, network slicing requires the underlying network
   to support partitioning of the network resources to provide the
   client with dedicated (private) networking, computing, and storage
   resources drawn from a shared pool.  The slices may be seen as
   virtual networks.  [I-D.peng-teas-network-slicing] specifies a
   detailed mechanism to signal association of shared resources required
   to create and manage an NSI called "Administrative Instance
   Identifier" (AII).

   This draft describes the IS-IS extensions required to distribute AII
   information in an AS.

   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.

3.  Advertising AII information as a new TE parameter of a link

   [RFC5305] describes extensions to the Intermediate System to
   Intermediate System (IS-IS) protocol to support Traffic Engineering
   (TE).
