                 Inter-Area Point-to-Multipoint (P2MP)
                 Segmented Label Switched Paths (LSPs)

Abstract

   This document describes procedures for building inter-area point-to-
   multipoint (P2MP) segmented service label switched paths (LSPs) by
   partitioning such LSPs into intra-area segments and using BGP as the
   inter-area routing and Label Distribution Protocol (LDP).  Within
   each IGP area, the intra-area segments are either carried over intra-
   area P2MP LSPs, using P2MP LSP hierarchy, or instantiated using
   ingress replication.  The intra-area P2MP LSPs may be signaled using
   P2MP RSVP-TE or P2MP multipoint LDP (mLDP).  If ingress replication
   is used within an IGP area, then (multipoint-to-point) LDP LSPs or
   (point-to-point) RSVP-TE LSPs may be used in the IGP area.  The
   applications/services that use such inter-area service LSPs may be
   BGP Multicast VPN, Virtual Private LAN Service (VPLS) multicast, or
   global table multicast over MPLS.
