Body
The experts of Q10/15 would like to inform you that they have agreed to
consent Recommendation ITU-T G.8113.2/Y.1372.2, “Operations, Administration
and Maintenance mechanism for MPLS-TP networks using the tools defined for
MPLS.”
This Recommendation provides MPLS-TP OAM mechanisms.  It specifies mechanisms
for user-plane OAM (Operations, Administration and Maintenance) in MPLS-TP
networks to meet the MPLS-TP OAM requirements defined in [IETF RFC 5860]. It
also specifies the MPLS-TP OAM packet formats, syntax and semantics of MPLS-TP
OAM packet fields. 
The OAM mechanisms defined in this Recommendation assume common forwarding of
the MPLS-TP user packets and MPLS-TP OAM packets. In transport networks using
co-routed bidirectional point-to-point connections, the OAM return path is
always in band.
Note that the following IDs need to be approved and in the RFC Editor’s queue
by 28 October 2011 in order to initiate the Last Call in the approval process
so that it will complete before the December SG15 plenary:
1.	draft-ietf-mpls-tp-oam-framework, Operations, Administration and
Maintenance Framework for MPLS-based Transport Networks.
2.	draft-ietf-mpls-tp-cc-cv-rdi, Proactive Connectivity Verification,
Continuity Check and Remote Defect Indication for MPLS-TP.
3.	draft-ietf-mpls-tp-fault, MPLS Fault Management OAM.
4.	draft-ietf-mpls-tp-on-demand-cv, MPLS On-demand Connectivity Verification
and Route Tracing.
The following ID is not required for LC initiation because it is in the
Bibliography section:
5.	draft-ietf-mpls-tp-li-lb, MPLS-TP Lock Instruct and Loopback Functions.
