           MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) Linear Protection

Abstract

   This document is a product of a joint Internet Engineering Task Force
   (IETF) / International Telecommunications Union Telecommunications
   Standardization Sector (ITU-T) effort to include an MPLS Transport
   Profile within the IETF MPLS and Pseudowire Emulation Edge-to-Edge
   (PWE3) architectures to support the capabilities and functionalities
   of a packet transport network as defined by the ITU-T.

   This document addresses the functionality described in the MPLS-TP
   Survivability Framework document (RFC 6372) and defines a protocol
   that may be used to fulfill the function of the Protection State
   Coordination for linear protection, as described in that document.
