Licensing information, comments, notes, or URL for further information

If technology in this document is included in a standard adopted by IETF and any claims of any
Juniper patents are necessary for practicing the standard, any party will have the right to use any
such patent claims under reasonable, non-discriminatory terms, with reciprocity, to implement and
fully comply with the standard.

The reasonable non-discriminatory terms are:

If this standard is adopted, Juniper will not assert any patents owned or controlled by Juniper
against any party for making, using, selling, importing or offering for sale a product that
implements the standard, provided, however that Juniper retains the right to assert its patents
(including the right to claim past royalties) against any party that asserts a patent it owns or
controls (either directly or indirectly) against Juniper or any of Juniper's affiliates or
successors in title or against any products of Juniper or any products of any of Juniper's
affiliates either alone or in combination with other products; and Juniper retains the right to
assert its patents against any product or portion thereof that is not necessary for compliance with
the standard.

Royalty-bearing licenses will be available to anyone who prefers that option.

Note: The individual submitting this template represents and warrants that he or she is authorized by the Patent Holder to agree to the above-selected licensing declaration.
