            Virtual Circuit Connectivity Verification (VCCV)
     Capability Advertisement for MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP)

Abstract

   This document specifies how signaling and selection processes for
   Pseudowire (PW) Virtual Circuit Connectivity Verification (VCCV) are
   modified to ensure backward compatibility and allow use of proactive
   Connectivity Verification (CV), Continuity Check (CC), and Remote
   Defect Indication (RDI) over MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) PWs.
   This document introduces four new CV types and, to accommodate them,
   a new VCCV Extended CV parameter for PW Interface Parameters Sub-TLV
   is defined.

1.  Introduction

   Proactive Connectivity Verification (CV), Continuity Check (CC), and
   Remote Defect Indication (RDI) for the MPLS Transport Profile
   [RFC6428] are applicable to all constructs of the MPLS-TP, including
   pseudowires (PWs).  If the control plane is used to operate and
   manage PWs then the procedures defined in [RFC5085] and [RFC5885]
   should be used to select the proper type of Control Channel and the
   corresponding type of Connectivity Verification.  This document
   specifies how signaling and selection processes are modified to
   ensure backward compatibility and allow use of proactive CV-CC-RDI
   over MPLS-TP PWs.
