Technical Summary The MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) is the set of functions that meet the requirements in RFC5654. The MPLS transport Profile allow the deployment and operation of of MPLS based packet-switched transport networks. MPLS-based packet transport networks are defined and described in MPLS-TP Framework. This document defines the set of functions that comprise the MPLS-TP data plane: the architectural layer concerned with the encapsulation and forwarding of packets within an MPLS-TP network. This layer is based on the data plane architectures for MPLS (RFC3031) and (RFC3032)) and for Pseudowires (RFC3985). Working Group Summary Since the document is an output from the MPLS-TP project it is the joint output of several IETF working groups and Qustion 9, 10, 12 and 14 of ITU-T SG15. Document Quality The document is well reviewed in all the groups mentioned above. Relevant content can frequently be found in the abstract and/or introduction of the document. If not, this may be an indication that there are deficiencies in the abstract or introduction. Personnel Loa Andersson (firstname.lastname@example.org) is the Document Shepherd.
