Technical Summary

   MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) is based on a profile of the MPLS
   and Pseudowire (PW) procedures as specified in the MPLS-TE, PW and
   Multi-Segment Pseudowire (MS-PW) architectures developed by the
   Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF).  The International
   Telecommunications Union Telecommunications Standardization Sector
   (ITU-T) has specified a Transport Network architecture.

   This document provides a thesaurus for the interpretation of MPLS-TP
   terminology within the context of the ITU-T Transport Network
   Recommendations.

   It is important to note that MPLS-TP is applicable in a wider set of
   contexts than just Transport Networks.  The definitions presented in
   this document do not provide exclusive nor complete interpretations
   of MPLS-TP concepts.  This document simply allows the MPLS-TP terms
   to be applied within the Transport Network context.

Working Group Summary

  There was broad support and strong consensus for this document, which
  is a valuable aid to understand the MPLS-TP work for people from both 
  MPLS/IETF and ITU-T backgrounds. 

Document Quality

  This document has received wide review both in the IETF MPLS WG and
  also in the ITU-T. A number of small nits were found and fixed during IETF
  last call.

  Ross Callon (rcallon@juniper.net) is the document shepherd.
