Ballot Text

Technical Summary

   This document defines a method for the support of GMPLS
   asymmetric bandwidth bidirectional Label Switched Paths 
   (LSPs). The presented approach is applicable to any
   switching technology and builds on the original Resource
   Reservation Protocol (RSVP) model for the transport of 
   traffic-related parameters. This document moves the
   experiment documented in RFC 5467 to the standards
   track and obsoletes RFC 5467.

Working Group Summary

   Nothing noteworthy. The document is considered to be both
   stable and complete.

Document Quality

   No implementations have been publicly discussed.
