Technical Summary

  RFC 4364 and RFC 4659 define an approach to building provider-
  provisioned Layer 3 VPNs for IPv4 and IPv6.  It may be desirable to
  use RSVP to perform admission control on the links between CE and PE
  routers.  This document specifies procedures by which RSVP messages
  travelling from CE to CE across an L3VPN may be appropriately handled
  by PE routers so that admission control can be performed on PE-CE
  links.  Optionally, admission control across the provider's backbone
  may also be supported.
