Technical Summary

This document sets out the problem statement for the exchange of TE
information between interconnected TE networks in support of end-to-
end TE path establishment and describes the best current practice
architecture to meet this problem statement.  For reasons that are
explained in the document, this work is limited to simple TE
constraints and information that determine TE reachability.
