RFC 7412

This RFC 7412 was published in 2014.

Abstract

This document presents the basic network objectives for the behavior of Shared Mesh Protection (SMP) that are not based on control-plane support.
This document provides an expansion of the basic requirements presented in RFC 5654 ("Requirements of an MPLS Transport Profile") and RFC 6372 ("MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) Survivability Framework").
This document provides requirements for any mechanism that would be used to implement SMP for MPLS-TP data paths, in networks that delegate protection switch coordination to the data plane.

RFC 7412 introduction

The MPLS Transport Profile (MPLS-TP) is described in [RFC5921].
[RFC6372] provides a survivability framework for MPLS-TP and is the foundation for this document.
