Draft of message to be sent after approval:
From: The IESG <firstname.lastname@example.org> To: IETF-Announce <email@example.com> Cc: RFC Editor <firstname.lastname@example.org>, mpls mailing list <email@example.com>, mpls chair <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Protocol Action: 'Encapsulating MPLS in UDP' to Proposed Standard (draft-ietf-mpls-in-udp-11.txt) The IESG has approved the following document: - 'Encapsulating MPLS in UDP' (draft-ietf-mpls-in-udp-11.txt) as Proposed Standard This document is the product of the Multiprotocol Label Switching Working Group. The IESG contact persons are Adrian Farrel and Alia Atlas. A URL of this Internet Draft is: http://datatracker.ietf.org/doc/draft-ietf-mpls-in-udp/
Technical Summary This document specifies an IP-based encapsulation for MPLS, referred to as MPLS-in- UDP (User Datagram Protocol). It also describes the applicability of this encapsulation in presence of other IP-based encapsulations for MPLS. This encapsulation allows for two Label Switching Routers (LSR) to be adjacent on a Label Switched Path (LSP), while separated by an IP network. Working Group Summary There is consensus to progress this document. Document Quality There are existing implementations of the protocol, and more than one vendor is believed to be either implementing or planning to implement. The document has been well reviewed. Personnel Loa Andersson is the Document Shepherd Alia Atlas is the Responsible Area Director. RFC Editor Note: Please add Martin Stiemerling to the list of names in Section 9 Acknowledgements.
