Technical Summary This document extends the procedures and Connectivity Verification (CV) types already defined for Bidirectional Forwarding Detection (BFD) for Virtual Circuit Connectivity Verification (VCCV) to define Seamless BFD (S-BFD) for VCCV. It updates RFC 5885, extending the CV Values and the Capability Selection, and is thus being submitted to be a Proposed Standard. Working Group Summary The draft has been non-controversial and there were no objections to consensus at any point. Document Quality The draft is externally cited by a CableLabs document, Data-Over-Cable Service Interface Specifications DCA - MHAv2 ( http://www.cablelabs.com/wp-content/uploads/specdocs/CM-SP-R-DEPI-I03-161021.pdf ) as a MUST for portions of its functionality. To my knowledge it has not yet been implemented, as it has not received IANA early allocations, but it is in at least one vendor's roadmap once the allocations have been made. Personnel The document shepherd is Andy Malis. The responsible Area Director is Deborah Brungard.
