    LDP Extensions for Hub and Spoke Multipoint Label Switched Path

Abstract

   This document introduces a hub and spoke multipoint (HSMP) Label
   Switched Path (LSP), which allows traffic from root to leaf through
   point-to-multipoint (P2MP) LSPs and also leaf to root along the
   reverse path.  That means traffic entering the HSMP LSP from the
   application/customer at the root node travels downstream to each leaf
   node, exactly as if it were traveling downstream along a P2MP LSP to
   each leaf node.  Upstream traffic entering the HSMP LSP at any leaf
   node travels upstream along the tree to the root, as if it were
   unicast to the root.  Direct communication among the leaf nodes is
   not allowed.
