Protection and recovery are important features of service offerings
in Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) and Generalized MPLS (GMPLS)
networks.  Increasingly, MPLS and GMPLS networks are being extended
from single domain scope to multi-domain environments.

Various schemes and processes have been developed to establish Label
Switched Paths (LSPs) in multi-domain environments.  These are
discussed in RFC 4726: "A Framework for Inter-Domain Multiprotocol
Label Switching Traffic Engineering".

This document analyzes the application of these techniques to
protection and recovery in multi-domain networks.  The main focus for
this document is on establishing end-to-end diverse Traffic
Engineering (TE) LSPs in multi-domain networks.  This memo provides
information for the Internet community.
