Subject: Protocol Action: 'Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) Support For Metro Ethernet Forum and G.8011 User-Network Interface (UNI)' to Proposed Standard
The IESG has approved the following document:
- 'Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) Support For Metro Ethernet Forum and G.8011
User-Network Interface (UNI) '
<draft-ietf-ccamp-gmpls-mef-uni-03.txt> as a Proposed Standard
This document is the product of the Common Control and Measurement Plane Working Group.
The IESG contact persons are Adrian Farrel and Stewart Bryant.
A URL of this Internet-Draft is:
This document describes a method for controlling two specific types
of Ethernet switching via a Generalized Multi-Protocol Label
Switching (GMPLS) based User-Network Interface (UNI). This document
supports the types of switching required by the Ethernet services
that have been defined in the context of the Metro Ethernet Forum
(MEF) and International Telecommunication Union (ITU) G.8011. This
document is the UNI companion to "Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) Support
For Metro Ethernet Forum and G.8011 Ethernet Service Switching".
This document does not define or limit the underlying intra-domain or
Internal NNI (I-NNI) technology used to support the UNI.
Working Group Summary
Nothing to report.
There are no known implementations, but it is expected that several
vendors plan to implement.

RFC Editor Note
RFC Editor - we suggest that you treat this I-D as part of a cluster
including the following five documents.
Label Switched Paths (LSPs)
There is one additional UNI specific requirements for signaling LSPs
supporting an EVPL type service.
There is one additional UNI specific requirement for signaling LSPs
