MPLS-TP shared ring protection
|Publication Date:||1 August 2017|
This Recommendation provides architecture and mechanisms for shared ring protection for multiprotocol label switching-transport profile (MPLS-TP) networks.
It describes the MPLS-TP shared ring protection (MSRP) mechanisms and the ring protection switch (RPS) protocol defined in [IETF RFC 8227].
The mechanisms defined herein protect point-to-point MPLS-TP label switched paths (LSPs) against failures at the MPLS-TP section layer.
This Recommendation provides a representation of the MPLS-TP technology using the methodologies that have been used for other transport technologies [e.g., synchronous digital hierarchy (SDH), optical transport network (OTN) and Ethernet].1
1 This ITU-T Recommendation is intended to be aligned with the IETF MPLS RFCs it cites as normative references.
