This document describes procedures and protocol extensions for the
use of Resource Reservation Protocol-Traffic Engineering (RSVP-TE)
signaling in Multiprotocol Label Switching-Traffic Engineering
(MPLS-TE) packet networks and Generalized MPLS (GMPLS) packet and
non-packet networks to support the establishment and maintenance of
Label Switched Paths that cross domain boundaries.

For the purpose of this document, a domain is considered to be any
collection of network elements within a common realm of address space
or path computation responsibility.  Examples of such domains include
Autonomous Systems, Interior Gateway Protocol (IGP) routing areas, and
GMPLS overlay networks.  [STANDARDS TRACK]
