Technical Summary MPLS-TP is the common set of MPLS protocol functions defined to enable establishment and operation of packet transport networks transport LSPs. MPLS-TP supports both point-to-point and point-to-multipoint transport paths (LSPs). This document defines the elements and functions of the MPLS architecture applicable specifically to the support point-to- multipoint transport paths. Working Group Summary No concerns. Document Quality This document is an Informational framework, and as such we will see no direct implementations of the document, though we are aware of intentions to implement protocols for establishing P2MP MPLS-TP LSPs. Personnel Loa Andersson is the Document Shepherd. Adrian Farrel is the Responsible Area Director.
