MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) Identifiers

This RFC 6370 was published in 2011.

Abstract

This document specifies an initial set of identifiers to be used in the Transport Profile of Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS-TP).
The MPLS-TP requirements (RFC 5654) require that the elements and objects in an MPLS-TP environment are able to be configured and managed without a control plane.
In such an environment, many conventions for defining identifiers are possible.
This document defines identifiers for MPLS-TP management and Operations, Administration, and Maintenance (OAM) functions compatible with IP/ MPLS conventions.

RFC 6370 introduction

This document specifies an initial set of identifiers to be used in the Transport Profile of Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS-TP).
The MPLS-TP requirements (RFC 5654 [7]) require that the elements and objects in an MPLS-TP environment are able to be configured and managed without a control plane.
In such an environment, many conventions for defining identifiers are possible.
This document defines identifiers for MPLS-TP management and OAM functions compatible with IP/MPLS conventions.
That is, the identifiers have been chosen to be compatible with existing IP, MPLS, GMPLS, and Pseudowire definitions.
